Media, Culture and Public Connection: Freedom of Information in “the Age of Big Data”

Forskningsgruppen bak MeCIn

MeCIn is a four-year project at the University of Bergen, funded by the Research Council of Norway. The Project is studying media and culture use, and will:

  • Provide new insight into how norwegian citizens use their freedom of information across media and cultural arenas

  • Provide a better understanding of why some groups choose to disconnect from the public

  • Give new thoughts on the relationship between citizens and the media

The project is led by Hallvard Moe, Professor in Media Studies at the University of Bergen
