In developed countries, newsrooms are cutting staff left and right, begging the question if the future of quality journalism can be sustained under such structures. Despite the fact that technology brings about higher productivity, aggregators and users fill the content gap, and newsrooms create partnerships, will these measures be enough? Can newsrooms do more with less? Is innovation the answer? Who should be hired after staff reduction takes effect?

The panelists will present different scenarios of staff organization or restructuration in their media in 2012 and 2013.

How La Stampa totally changed its newsroom organization - as well as its newsroom design - for a better service to readers and users and a genuine multi-platform system.

Case study n°2
How 24 Media became the first digital-native publisher in Greece and, since summer 2011, the number one in sites/visitors/ad-serving
