In Europe, more and more journalistic nonprofit projects and new models are emerging. The spectrum ranges from local news cooperatives to national and multinational research newsrooms. Can we learn from each other? Can we support each other? What are shared and what are competing interests? Is networking the thing? How can larger and older initiatives share knowledge with start-ups? The purpose of this round table is to gather and exchange experiences and to see whether and how we can network on entrepreneurial challenges.
