From funding models to accountability and access, InnoPSM promises a multi-stakeholder approach to research in the field of PSM. 

Innovation in Public Service Media Policies (InnoPSM) is a new ARHC-funded research network, which uses a multi-stakeholder approach to bring together academic experts, practitioners and policymakers with a shared interest in PSM to discuss global, ‘innovative policy solutions and strategies’ to confront the contemporary challenges facing PSM in the digital age.

The research network is convened by Alessandro D’Arma (University of Westminster), with Minna Horowitz (University of Helsinki) and working in partnership with Dr Caitriona Noonan and Professor Stuart Allan of the Creative Industries Policy & Evidence Centre (PEC), from Cardiff University.

There will be a series of four workshops, each with a different theme including: PSM funding models; content and services; the access and discoverability of PSM content and PSM accountability and participatory practices. Members of the InnoPSM Steering Committee, which is comprised of scholars and representatives of PSM organisations, including PMA’s own CEO, Sally-Ann Wilson, will meet twice during the course of the project to develop the agenda for each of the four workshops as well as evaluate the outcomes of the project itself and how the network can maintain a strong media ecosystem of academia and PSM stakeholders even after the project ends.

The Public Media Alliance look forward to supporting and contributing to this project and network.
