He is the leader of the DANI research project.

Her most recent book is The Markets for News: Enduring Structures in the Age of Business Model Disruptions (Routledge, 2023). She is an international guest researcher on the DANI research project.

The Advisory Board
The DANI research project has an Advisory Board. It consists of Professor Claes H. de Vreese (University of Amsterdam), Professor Juliane Lischka (University of Hamburg), Associate Professor Jannie Møller Hartley (Roskilde University), and Head of Research and Innovation Kasper Lindskow (Ekstra Bladet and Copenhagen Business School).
We welcome Visiting Scholars whose work aligns with the research of the DANI project. Being a Visiting Scholar here means you are our guest and collaborator for a shorter period of time. There is no “template” for how long that period of time is (could be just a few days, could be a month), or for what exactly we do with that time.
