360 Video journalism

Dr. Miguel Barreda-√Āngeles (Fundacio Eurecat Barcelona, Department Data Science & Big Data Analytics, see Google scholarprofile) and Tilo Hartmann from the VU Department of Communication Science (as supervisor) worked out a EU Marie-Curie Individual Fellowship proposal that was just accepted. It will allow Miguel to spent two years doing research at the department and NI’s tech labs on the effects of 360-degree (VR) journalism. Miguel plans to start his research at the VU as of September this year.
