FLORENCE - The challenges associated with digital transformation and AI applications are now at the centre of national and EU policy agendas, as a new reference framework is being built to ensure respect for rights and EU values in this new ecosystem. In view of this critical moment for policymaking at national and EU levels, the 11th edition of the Summer School for Journalists and Media Practitioners aims to discuss the challenges and opportunities for journalism in the new information ecosystem from legal, economic, and socio-political perspectives.

Building on the success of previous years, this edition of the Summer School will provide the opportunity for 20 journalists and media practitioners to learn about the latest developments regarding (and not only) the new EU digital framework affecting professional journalism and the media sector, as well as to share their experiences, ideas and points of view, creating thus a collaborative and critical experience for all participants. The Summer School programme is structured around keynote presentations by distinguished experts and follow-up interactive sessions.

CMPF offers up to twenty (20) scholarships that cover travel expenses (up to 350 EUR), accommodation for 5 nights, tuition fees, all course materials, access to the EUI library, Wi-Fi access at the EUI, social activities, lunches and coffee breaks on lecture days.

The scholarships are awarded by application only. Scholarships are not intended for participants who can receive funds from their own institutions. 

The selection will take into account the candidate’s professional profile, language skills and additional competencies, such as having an international profile, work experience, certificates and other achievements.

Please note that the CMPF cannot assist the selected participants with the Visa application process or expenses for travel documents.

Application deadline: 19 March 2023

Selected candidates will be contacted starting from 31 March 2023

The working language of the Summer School is English.
