Managing in a multimedia world

Engaging managers and senior editors is a key strategy in Thomson Foundation’s initial programme in Jordan as part of the multi-million euro OPEN Media Hub project to support and train journalists in 17 of the states bordering the European Union. Master classes have addressed the challenges of transition facing traditional media in tackling the digital environment and the coverage of terrorism and radicalisation. A media hub is being developed where journalists can share work with each other and channels in the EU.

OPEN Media Hub

With the OPEN Media Hub project, we’ll build stories that will inform debate in critical areas like migration, energy and terrorism at a time when revealing the real picture has never been harder or mattered more
