Considering the importance of innovations, in general and for the news media industry in particular, the main objective of the panel is to promote discussions on how innovation policies are currently supporting innovative activities in a rapid changing industry, the levels at which they are doing so, and how innovation policies can help the news media industry to meet development needs and requirements in the future. Although innovation policies to stimulate innovation in journalism and news media are not new, the policies and the different types of support offered to the news media industry are changing around the world. Given the fact that the present innovation policies are relatively new, the effects of these policies on innovative activities are generally still unknown. A comparison of these policies can increase our insight into their efficacy and possibly reveal areas of improvement so that the policies can be adapted to become more effective.
This panel explores the importance and the types of media innovation policies formulated and implemented in different countries around the world and helps identify and evaluate how they are stimulating innovation in journalism and news media. Each contributor presents an overview of the formulated and implemented innovation policies to promote innovative activities in journalism and news media and some recommendations. This panel contributes to the conference by discussion what the best practices are to support innovation in a rapidly changing news media landscape.

Hence, this panel:
- Explores the importance and the types of media innovation policies formulated and implemented in various countries in the world and helps identify and evaluate how they are stimulating innovation in journalism and news media.
- Determines what the best practices of innovation policies are to stimulate innovation in a rapidly changing news media landscape.
