Come and meet your peers at WAN-IFRA’s Media Lab day in Munich! Confirmed presentations from:

– Südwestdeutsche Medienholding
– Agence France-Presse
– Södertörn University
– Vor Ort NRW
– Stibo Accelerator
The « Media Labs Days » is the second ‘live’ event directly related to our Media Innovation Mapping research project which plans to ‘map’ innovation labs, clusters and a selection of projects globally. The aim of our research is to establish insights on how the media labs are structured, and why they were created, what type of methods they use to innovate, their products and services and stories of their successes and failures.
The goal of this event is to offer an opportunity for the people we are connecting (Heads of Labs, Innovation officers etc.) to meet in person and discuss successes and challenges together.
The event is free of charge and for WAN-IFRA members, but the number of places is limited.
UPDATE: Participants have received a confirmation e-mail. Keep an eye out for the next Media Labs Days!
