n research hub|

The purpose of NLTR Research Hub is to conduct research on the future of journalism and to create new discussions.

Why were we founded?

The media is at the center of a technological, financial and political crisis. While the newsrooms are trying to keep up with this change, the academy is trying to understand this change by transforming their skill sets. NewsLabTurkey Research Hub emerged to meet these needs at a time when the academy had difficulties in understanding the media and the media professionals and entrepreneurs needed help to understand their own problems.

What do we do?

Our research unit publishes technical reports and research on different problems and developments in the journalism industry. We also provide research and consultancy services to non-governmental organizations and commercial organizations in the field of media and communication. Our aim is to contribute to sectoral progress by conducting research with semi-academic pragmatic approaches in the field of journalism.
