What is the DNI? expand_more_black
The Digital News Initiative (DNI) is a partnership between Google and news publishers in Europe to support high quality journalism through technology and innovation.
The goal is to encourage a more sustainable news ecosystem -- and promote innovation in digital journalism -- through ongoing collaboration and dialogue between the tech and news sectors.

- Product development: Google and news publishers will establish a ‘product working group’ to enable a close, on-going dialogue exploring product developments to increase revenue, traffic and audience engagement. Find out more here.
- Supporting Innovation: Google will support and stimulate innovation in digital news journalism over the next three years by creating an innovation fund to support and stimulate innovation in digital news journalism over the next three years. Find out more here.
- Training & research: Google will invest in new training and development resources for journalists and newsrooms across Europe, and will fund research into the changing media landscape. Find out more here.
