  • To support media and media organisations to develop innovative distinctive formats by using a variety of platforms and developing essential content relevant to their own work and cooperation among them including working conditions, the safety of journalists and other media professionals;
  • To support quality media coverage of issues that interest all age groups and have a strong impact on people’s lives, including the impact of disinformation;
  • To create Multimedia/multi-platform content, including interactive elements such as mobile journalism, multimedia content, livestreams to help distribute content and maximise outreach even if the primary platform is one of the traditional media.
