Staff at each of the universities in the Mundus Journalism consortium fully recognise that a thorough understanding of journalism and globalisation requires knowledge complementary to what each partner can deliver alone. The successful integration of complementary knowledge requires an input from journalism research in different academic fields and an awareness of media industry’s changing environment.
In order to facilitate this the Mundus Journalism Consortium supports an interchange of knowledge and cooperative research between the institutions via staff exchange and staff visits. Below you can read staff reports related to this activity.
