IJ-7, the Seventh Conference on Innovation Journalism took place at Stanford University 7-9 June 2010. The conference materials have since then been available on the conference website. They can as from now also be referred to through the Innovation Journalism Publication Series.

IJ-7 had two main parts - the main conference and the academic track

Main Conference (June 7-9 2010)

MISSION STATEMENT: The world is driven by creative destruction, when entrepreneurs introduce innovations that change societies and drive economic growth. How can journalism survive, while successfully telling the stories about it and facilitating public discussion? Is journalism+innovation a key to collective intelligence in the innovation economy? IJ-7 is a conference for everyone who thinks journalism and innovation is important. We welcome all journalism and innovation stakeholders: journalists, industry, policy-makers in media and innovation, PR, academic researchers, faculty and students in related areas of study, other professionals connected to the news industry, as well as individuals with a special interest in journalism and innovation.
