MIZ Deciders Day 2023


im MIZ Babelsberg

– This event will be held in English. –

The dominance of Big Tech companies also affects journalism: To reach users and earn money with their content, media outlets increasingly depend on Google, Meta, and others.

Which constructive approaches exist to reduce this dependency and build independent platforms, networks, and technical solutions?

For the "MIZ Deciders Day – Building Independence from Big Tech" on December 7, 2023, four keynote speakers will present European best practices on this topic. Afterwards, they will discuss strategies, challenges, and learnings with each other – and with you.
