As part of the second pilot, the CPN project is excited to welcome readers to experience and test news personalisation with the CPN app. This blog post will give an overview of pilot 2: the what, how & why.
Personalised news content from VRT, Deutsche Welle and Dias
We are inviting news readers to test the CPN app during a 4-week test period, starting in mid-May, with news content in the language of their choice - Dutch, English or Greek. Consortium partners VRT, Deutsche Welle and Dias have made their content available via the CPN app. When first launching the app, testers will be able to select their preferred language.

Expectations & next steps
During the test period, we might from time to time ask you to give your comments on the CPN app – feedback will be gathered via email and push notifications in the app. Thanks to the feedback from our testers, CPN will be able to improve and update the app and its recommendation software. As we also welcome media organisations to use the CPN software to personalise their own content, the feedback from readers is crucial in building a better personalised news experience.
