INJECT - Future Journalism, Now.

On 1 January 2017, WAN-IFRA initiated its partnership with the INJECT consortium (“INnovating Journalism: Enhanced Creativity Tools”). The project is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 framework for Research and Innovation and includes 14 European partners (from media, academia, startups and tech).

The INJECT consortium is developing an inspiration tool to help improve the creativity and productivity of journalists in the digital world. It leverages powerful search algorithms that surface articles, individuals and visuals related to stories to trigger new and original ideas quickly.

The inspiration tool (available in beta) makes it easier to find new story ideas and angles by offering various options to explore articles, visuals and data in a novel way.

In addition to the inspiration tool, the consortium is developing creative strategies for journalists in a broader sense. Journalists and Creativity in Professional Practice scholars are currently working together on a MOOC and workshop.
