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

The project is connected to the research group for media use and audience studies at the University of Bergen, and is a collaborative project with the Norwegian Institute for Social Research, Oslo Metropolitan University and the University of Stavanger.
