2016-09-01 Italy: YounEUs - European News for Youngsters


YounEUs - European News for Youngsters

Description of the project offered: 
The main goal of the YounEUs project is to provide a platform reporting about European issues, from a pan-European viewpoint, dedicated to young people. To do so, it stimulates the production of innovative content through data-driven research and visualizations and the distribution of such content to as many EU young citizens as possible.
The project takes care of both sides of the information flow: data production and data distribution. YounEUs will develop a standard-based modules platform for the enhancement of news discovery, processing and reshaping. Such re-work will support journalist in their work on one side, while will also promote access to information from the wider public, leveraging on personalization on the other side. Delivery will also promote and foster a community of users, debating and exchanging ideas.
In this way the project will help to increase reporting on European issues by making it easier for media companies/journalists to produce innovative and attractive content around such topics, allowing young citizens to be better informed and interested about EU facts.
