It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we inform you about the passing of Anne Jacobsen, the CEO of Media City Bergen and the Media Innovation Norway. Anne passed away unexpectedly on Friday, January 28th.

She was a visionary leader, a key force in Media City Bergen, and a strong believer in responsible media technology. Her support and enthusiasm during the formation and devolvement of MediaFutures was invaluable. We all grieve the loss of our friend, and an inspiring human being.

We send our condolences and warmest thoughts to Anne’s family and friends. For information about the funeral and memorial service, please visit


Christoph Trattner, Centre Director MediaFutures, on behalf of the whole team.
