Smart Topics: Giving the big picture to the youth (Round 6)

The project is an answer to a growing appetite for context and explanation among readers, especially the youngest. Today, many of them feel left out by the content they read. They want to understand the big picture behind the news of the day. The "smart topics" will be an attempt to solve this problem. They will enable readers to access a second layer of news giving them the context, the historical depth and the explanations they need to fully understand the current developments of the main stories.

Assets: Generate powerful insights for readers and journalists (Round 6)

From our own observations, rankings are the dominant data based format in the economics press. However, this format is usually already outdated once published. Its editorial life cycle is not at all compatible with its new digital existence where real-time prevails. With Assets, we want to transform rankings into a dynamic database that can become a real goldmine for our audience and an invaluable editorial product for our journalists.

Personalization: Breathing New Life Into Our Business Model (Round 6)

Since 2012, L’Équipe has opted for a diversified business model: based both on the monetization of ad space and on income generated by reader purchases. Our offer is strong and allows us to attract a significant number of users and increase our subscriber base. Nonetheless, it must be reinforced and bolstered to build audience loyalty and get to know our readers better in order to optimize revenues and subscriptions. Personalized content recommendations are a great opportunity to breathe new life into our business model and journalistic output. The goal is to increase subscribers and increase the use of the platforms.
