On January 11 and 12, 2016, Arne Krumsvik and Helle Sjøvaag, two scholars from the Centre for Interdisciplinary Media Research (STM) at the University of Oslo and Akershus, visited MMTC.
They successfully completed a joint workshop aimed at analyzing and developing future media policy frameworks in the context of the Nordic region. This would help secure the economic conditions necessary for private and national editorial media to serve as platforms for open public conversations and freedom of information in the digital age.
