Collaboration Drives Innovation

Our structured approach to innovation - both technological and editorial - is unique.

  • Together, we solve everyday problems in real-life situations, using ideas and solutions generated by the collaborators.
  • We work inside newsrooms, with the people who need the skills and tools the most.
  • Our approach is design-led, user-centred and collaboration-driven. We tailor everything to journalistic workflows.

We believe in practical solutions and processes which can be redeployed.

Pop-Up Newsroom is an innovation framework for newsrooms that are changing the way they collaborate, communicate and engage audiences through new tools and training.
