INJECT – Future Journalism, Now

Article ID:


INJECT is developing an inspiration tool and training for journalists. WAN-IFRA’s Global Alliance for Media Innovation has joined the project to connect these new techniques to its network of media professionals that could benefit from it.

Looking for inspiration?

INJECT is a tool for journalists who want to diversify and broaden their reporting.

Supporting the creative process, it triggers new ideas for story angles more easily and quickly. Unlike search engines, INJECT gives insights, not links.

The inspiration tool (available in beta) makes it easier to find new story ideas and angles by offering various options to explore articles, visuals and data in a novel way.

In addition to the inspiration tool, the consortium is developing creative strategies for journalists in a broader sense. Journalists and Creativity in Professional Practice scholars are currently working together on a MOOC and workshop.

INJECT leverages AI-based search algorithms that surface articles, individuals and visuals related to your story.

Explore alternative angles, easily

Different Search Strategies surface different types of news-related content, including key players, cartoons and articles with facts and figures in them specifically.
