What is MediaFutures

Reshaping the media value chain through responsible and innovative uses of data.

MediaFutures is a three year European innovation project (supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme) which aims at contributing to high-quality media activities.
MediaFutures establishes a data-driven innovation hub to offer grant funding and support for startups and artists through three Open Calls. We’re looking for pilots, artworks and experiences that use data to encourage citizens to engage more meaningfully with high-quality journalism, science education and digital citizenship.

open call

During three Open Calls, we select startup ideas and creative projects to participate
in the MediaFutures support programme.

Each call has three tracks:

Track 1

Artists for Media

For artists with an innovative artwork concept and production process that critically and materially explore data and technology to question and comment on its impact on individuals and society. Artists participate in a six-month Residency programme.

Track 2

Startups for Citizens

For startups to build a product or service that encourages novel, more meaningful ways to engage with media content. They will participate in a six-month Accelerator programme.

Track 3

Startup meets Artist

For teams of startups and artists to collaboratively develop new concepts of data technology and the arts.
They take part in a six-month mixed Residency and Accelerator programme.

The 2nd Open Call has closed and is currently under evaluation.

The 1st Open Call closed in January 2021 (see results) and the selected projects

(see here) concluded the support programme.

A 3rd Open Call will open in autumn 2022.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.
