Media Futures open call
Description: The MediaFutures support programme is looking for artists and startups eager to reshape the media value chain through innovative, inclusive and participatory applications of data and user-generated content.
The first Open Call covers 4 Challenges.
Three of them are focusing on the coronavirus infodemic, the fourth one is open for other topics. Choose one of them and explain how you will address it through the MediaFutures support programme.
Each of the Challenges can be addressed via the use of any dataset or combination of datasets, from those provided by the data infrastructure of MediaFutures, or other open or shared datasets. The MediaFutures consortium will provide participants of the Open Call with (i) basic training sessions on data management technologies, (ii) a first level of technical support for orienting them within existing databases and tools. Technical developments dedicated to the projects shall be foreseen in their workplans and budgets.
To demonstrate the viability of your project, you should have a clear outline for the data you will require, including feasible strategies to access this data both technically and legally.
Budget: Up to 80K € per project
