24 October 2017

Towards an improved personal news offer, enabling economic impact for large and small news publishers.

On 19 & 20 September 2017, the CPN (Content Personalization Network) project consortium held its Kick-off meeting at the VRT premises in Brussels.

The aim of the first CPN meeting was to: 1) Develop a common understanding of the project objectives, tasks and expected results, 2) Work in detail with task planning and coordination of task contributions with emphasis on priority tasks, 3) Establish a common basis for the effective coordination of Project work and Partnership communication.

The kick-off of CPN, supported by the Horizon 2020 programme, gathered in Brussels some of the most innovative players of the media and technology fields in Europe ranging from broadcasters,academic and research organisations to market oriented companies: VRT, ATC, ENG, DW, Digicat, imec, DIAS, LVT, WAN-IFRA, and RCS. All of them share the aim of increasing the value of media sector by developing a new approach to personalisation of digital content, allowing both large and small media companies to benefit from the value of being able to better target content to media consumers. From the viewpoint of the media consumer, the challenge is to enable a better delivery of news, insights and informations in the right format at the right time, and better contextualized to the media consumer. The core of CPN is to create an innovation in the way in which content creators can structure content production, distribution and in-depth interaction with audiences.

ATC will lead the development of the technology modules that are necessary for the operation of the CPN platform and will, also, actively participate in the innovation and commercialisation activities, as the connection between the media industry and the ICT sector.

The project started in September 2017 and will have a duration of 30 months.
