Under the umbrella of the Smart Media Accelerator (SMA), the Media Parcours is a development programme aimed at strengthening the viability of Tunisian media outlets.

Media Parcours is an intensive programme through which participating media pass over a period of 6 to 9 months- it aims for quick results and visible success, and overall improved sustainability of participating media outlets. Based on strategic analysis, it offers targeted and individual support. The programme adapts to the needs of the participating media and supports them in the form of financial means, as well as learning, knowledge, and expertise.

Media Parcours is a flexible programme that offers different support options: capacity building, trainings by experts to improve the way the media outlet is run, access to online resources (MOOC), targeted funding, and even networking.

The heart of the support is structured along three main axes:

  1. the quality of journalistic content and “the process of creating it”
  2. financial management
  3. audience development

The aim of Media Parcours is to enhance and grasp the media’s success in figures and on the basis of quality criteria. The media, therefore, can have access to key information to contact investors, media funds, sponsors, etc. at any time.
