News Impact Summits
The News Impact Summits are events where media professionals meet, network, learn and get inspired.
What are the News Impact Summits?
Each summit provides the opportunity to look at and discuss one of the major challenges that journalism and journalists are currently facing and how technology may help solve or disrupt it.
Editors, newsroom managers, journalists, designers, developers and J-school students with new ideas, tools and methods gather at this one-day event to network, learn and get inspired by other media professionals, startups, academics, as well as experts from other industries to exchange knowledge and ideas on the ever-changing future of journalism.
Our Summits are free-of-charge and organised across Europe.
Since 2014, the European Journalism Centre has organised 26 summits in 19 cities across 15 countries in Europe and the Middle East, powered by the Google News Initiative.
The summit was an exceptionally well organized and insightful conference, and it also gathered such a lovely, diverse and interested crowd of people.Anita Zielina, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism

For me, the News Impact Summit was a needed occasion to keep faith in journalism, and to meet amazing journalists doing their best to produce meaningful stories, while trying to innovate, but for the sake of facts.Sébastien Bossi Croci, Uxo
