Tallinn Summer School | July 29 – August 2, 2013

Management of Digital Content Industries 
Non-degree course | July 29 – August 2, 2013

As the networked communications infrastructures have disrupted the various media content industries, leading to a crisis regarding the economic sustainability of these industries, there is an urgent need to investigate the existing best practices and learn the new ways of managing the institutions of media content production.


The specific focus of the Summer School will be on the emerging multiplatform publishing and content diversification strategies – known as crossmedia strategies of forms of transmedia storytelling. We will investigate the associated ways of content development as well as the relevant models of business development. Under special focus will be the management of participatory media as well as social media strategies for media institutions. Our lecturers as well as co-students will be coming from several countries around the Baltic Sea (Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Russia) and from other countries in Europe.
