“Future Week holds activities within a wide range of topics - everything from the bits and bytes in media tech, to the grand questions of our time,” said Anne Jacobsen, CEO of NCE Media. She added that Future Week is also “a platform for collaboration and innovation”.

The festival opened with “The future is wireless – 5G and emerging technologies”. This presentation was on the emergence of 5G technology and how it could influence various industries moving forward.

Future Week began in 2017 by the NCE media cluster members. They sought a platform to discuss the future of the media landscape as it is continually shaped by new technologies. Its focus has traditionally revolved around the future of journalism, storytelling formats and democracy itself.
