Today Nordicom Launches NordMedia Network

At the NordMedia conference in August 2019, Nordicom launches a new digital platform dedicated to Nordic media researchers. On the platform, you are able to present yourself and your research, find partners and keep up to date with the latest in Nordic media research, in a completely new Nordic context.


NordMedia Network is a new digital platform devoted to the community of researchers that for the past four decades has grown out of the NordMedia conference. We hope it will serve as a source for inspiration, information and interaction for media and communication researchers from, or with a research interest in, the Nordic region. 

NordMedia Network is operated by Nordicom at the University of Gothenburg in collaboration with the Department of Information Science and Media Studies at the University of Bergen. NordMedia Network is funded with support from the Nordic Council of Ministers.

NordMedia Network’s features include:

  • A new researcher database. NordMedia Network offers a searchable and freely accessible database of Nordic media researchers based on self-recruitment, which means that the researchers themselves are responsible for registering and updating their personal profiles. This makes it easy to keep track of researchers in the field and for journalists and others to find experts within different areas.
  • A researcher’s toolbox. NordMedia Network also providesdedicated news, information and resources for the Nordic media research community. Researchers and institutions are encouraged to contribute ideas and suggest new content.
  • A permanent home for the biennial NordMedia conference. Nordmedia Network will also host the NordMedia conference, which takes place every two years and is dedicated to Nordic media and communication research. It is organised by the national associations for media researchers, in collaboration with Nordicom. 

The platform is still under construction. Help us out by creating your profile today! We also welcome your feedback as our work progresses.
