Infrastructures and Interfaces of Publics: Journalism for Civic Communication in Urban Space

About InfraPublics

InfraPublics addresses a gap between journalism studies and smart city research, taking the datafication of urban spaces as an opportunity for journalism to go beyond the “informed citizen” model of its audience. The project maps and evaluates approaches to how journalists, citizens, cities, data providers and civic tech NGOs can work together on a local level to shape infrastructures for civic communication in the connected city.

The project is funded by Aarhus University Research Fund (AUFF) between 2020 and 2024 under Project No. AUFF-F2020-7-11.
