Announcing Leap: ICFJ's News Innovation Lab

How can media outlets build trust, when so many people doubt the credibility of news? This is one of the most pressing questions journalism faces today, and it has far-reaching implications not only for the industry but for our civic health. Addressing this and other urgent issues requires prodigious creativity, as well as the time and support for innovation – something few newsrooms have.

That’s why ICFJ has developed Leap, a news innovation lab. Our goal is not innovation simply for its own sake. We designed Leap to give newsrooms across the world the space to explore the most essential challenges confronting journalism today and to shape its future. We want to ease the risk and costs that inhibit innovation, especially for small and mid-sized independent news organizations.
