Innovation and Radio Hack Europe


Delegates first heard from Adeline Beving, open innovation project manager at Radio France about how they joined forces with Radio Canada to generate new ideas for content for children.

They recently encouraged staff and external companies to pitch ideas and Adeline expanded on what was learned from the exercise. She talked about the importance of sharing knowledge and encouraging big thinking.

Mounir Krichane, Director, EPFL Media Center, then told delegates about Radio Hack Europe which took place over the weekend prior to Radiodays. He talked about the process of running a hackathon. How participants should not be shy, join a team, think big but remember to take regular breaks and eat!

Delegates then heard from the winner, a project called Radio Act allowing real-time feedback for radio.

Finally there was a presentation by Samuel Vuillermoz on “Radio Ads Suck” and a concept for blocking radio ads, with the additional option to use personalised text to speech or community-made funny ads.
