New business models for the news industry - seminar

20. november, kl. 13-15:30, lokale 27.0.17.

Organized jointly by Creative Media Industries and Mediatization of Culture

For several years, the traditional business models of news organizations have been under pressure; news organizations’ earnings from advertising or subscription have decreased as a lot of the public’s news consumption has moved from print to online sources, and the financial crisis has weakened revenue possibilities further. As such, news organizations have had to rethink their business models, and their conclusions and strategies for monetizing the online audience vary. Even so, it remains an open question what the business models for the future of the news industry look like and how they become economically sustainable.

This seminar, organized by the strategic research area Creative Media Industries and the research group The Mediatization of Culture at the Department of Media, Cognition, and Communication, University of Copenhagen, presents state-of-the-art research into the evolving business models for the news industry as well as contributions from those practitioners that work with them on a daily basis.

The research seminar will be in Danish and Norwegian. Admission is free of charge and registration is not necessary.

Presenters: Aske Kammer (MEF, KU), Jens Barland (Oslo Universitet), Pernille Tranberg (redaktionel udviklingschef, Berlingske) og Stig Kirk Ørskov (koncerndirektør, JP/Politikens Hus).
