NEWSFLOWS is hosted at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and part of the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) and the Program Group Political Communication & Journalism (PCJ). All of our members are part of the Computational Communication Science Lab Amsterdam (ccs.amsterdam), in which researchers from both universities in Amsterdam, the Vrije Universiteit (VU) and the Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA) collaborate on and exchange ideas about computational communication science projects.
