Odense, 3.november 2021

The month of October was buzzing with activity in Media City Odense. 

On Thursday, the media cluster MCO took over the capital for the first time with an event in collaboration with Teknologiens Mediehus. The purpose was to showcase the tech stacks of four media houses for inspiration and debate, and it was a resounding success, which we already plan to repeat in the new year.  

The same evening, the first of a total of ten election parties on Funen premiered in connection with the local elections. It took place on Ærø and was broadcast live with debates, food stalls and analyzes. Valgfolkefesterne is a collaboration between Fyens Stiftstidende, Fyns Amts Avis, TV 2 Fyn and STV. 

Earlier this month, MCO was seriously kick-started at SDU with the conference ‘Discover Media City Odense’ targeted at employees with 60-70 participants and with contributions from TV 2, Jysk Fynske Medier and TV 2 Fyn. There are several exciting projects underway between the educational institution and the media companies, which we look forward to unveiling. 

At TV 2 on Kvægtorvet in Odense, 100 high school students from the city were entertained with the media technologies of the future in collaboration with the IT national team and Technology Denmark - an initiative to promote women in tech, which will last all year. 

We ended the month with a MediaBrunch in the old railway station, which dived into the media industry's post corona reality with interesting presentations from futurist Sofie Hvitved and Bo Kønskov from Abtion (known for the 4-day working week).
