The Somedia research project is focused on technology-mediated innovation work in Finnish media organizations. Our special interest lies in the use of enterprise social media (ESM) as tools for innovation work. 

In the project, we study how innovation work is currently facilitated and supported in Finnish media organizations, what are the employees’ views on innovation work and ESM use, and how innovation could be improved and better managed in media organizations. The project consists of case studies in two Finnish media organizations. Based on our findings, we will produce a workbook which will act as a guide in helping media organizations innovate better in their daily work. 

The project is funded by the Media Industry Research Foundation of Finland.
