we hope you are well! As you probably expected: the AGM in May in Vienna is cancelled. Please stay tuned for further informations and check the official EJTA-Website for any updates.

Maybe we will be able to find a new date in autumn - we will keep you posted!

All the best from FHWien and KfJ

We as EJTA are excited to see two well established journalism training organisations jointly organising our Annual General Meeting as well as a conference in the heart of Europe. We thank FH Wien der WKW and Kuratorium für Journalistenausbildung for hosting this event.

Dr. Nico DrokPresident, European Journalism Trainung Association (EJTA)

Be welcome to join us in Vienna: We hope that many fellow journalism educators and experts in various fields of media will follow our invitation for the #ejta2020 on digital storytelling.

Mag. Nikolaus Koller M.A.Executive Director, Kuratorium für Journalistenausbildung (KfJ)

Journalism has always been about the one big question: What is the story? Digital media offer new ways in telling those stories across various channels and for different audiences – but it is not an end in itself. We invite you to join us for our #ejta2020 conference to discuss best practice of digital storytelling in education and practice.

FH-Prof. in Mag.a Dr.in Daniela SüssenbacherHead of Journalism & Media Management Study Programs, FHWien der WKW
