Editors Lab at Yle in Helsinki

The GEN Editors Lab programme is a worldwide series of hackathons hosted by leading news organisations such as BBC, The Huffington Post and El País. Editors Lab brings together developers, journalists and designers from top newsrooms to build news prototypes during an intensive two-day competition.

In this publication, we will present some of the prototypes, stories, experiences and insights directly from Editors Lab participants.

You can start by having a look here at some of the prototypes that were later developed and implemented after an Editors Lab.
