At the annual conference of the Swiss Association of Communication and Media Research (SACM) in Zurich, the Swiss team presented the completed international inventory of innovations in journalism and first comparative findings.

During the innovation panel “Current Challenges” of the Journalism Research Group there was an opportunity to first go into more detail on the inventory in Switzerland and then to look at similarities and differences between the participating media systems. An innovation focus on “datafication”, which is revealed in the country comparison, was also evident in the preceding presentations. The methodology used to consolidate the cross-national listing was presented as well and positively received by the plenary.
