It is designed by the JournalismAI team at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and powered by the Google News Initiative. The Academy has been a core programme of the JournalismAI initiative since 2021, training 60 newsroom professionals from across the globe.

Thanks to the experience of the past two years and the exceptional feedback we received from participants, we are now reopening the Academy for two cohorts:

  • Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)
  • Asia-Pacific (APAC)

Program Details

The 8-week programme will start in June 2023. It is designed for journalists and media professionals from small news organisations (fewer than 50 employees). In line with JournalismAI’s mission to make the potential of AI more accessible for news organisations worldwide.

The Academy aims to support small newsrooms that want to learn how AI can be used to enhance their journalism. The programme combines a series of masterclasses given by experts working at the intersection of journalism and artificial intelligence with opportunities for discussion among participants.

In addition to that, participants will be guided through the development of resources that can support their organisations’ AI-adoption journey during and after the programme.The Academy is FREE for selected participants, thanks to the support of the Google News Initiative, which has been powering JournalismAI since 2019.
