Drawing on the latest research into news online, on mobile and on tablet - and a track-record of mentoring successful digital start-ups - the MADE team will help

Participants will also be invited to #DJCamp2012, a two-day workshop on how to use cutting-edge data journalism tools and techniques in order to create compelling content in
highly efficient ways, hosted by IBU from 8-9 November (More details to follow).
