Nordicom launched NordMedia Network, a new digital research platform, at the NordMedia conference in August 2019. The platform will serve as an online resource for connecting Nordic media researchers and making Nordic media research more accessible.
NordMedia Network will be a searchable and freely accessible database of media researchers. The database will be based on self-recruitment, allowing researchers to present their ongoing research and find collaborators and partners. The database will also help journalists and other people outside the academia to find media experts.
On NordMedia Network you can find upcoming conferences, vacant positions and stay up-to-date on the latest Nordic and international media research.
Previously, information about media and communication research was registered in the NCOM databases. These databases were closed down in April 2018 due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance.
Since the end of the 1970s, Nordicom has had a mandate to support Nordic research in the field of media and communication in various ways. From the beginning, research documentation has been one of its central tasks. This platform is a way of updating and adapting the body of knowledge to current conditions and needs.
