MediaRoad Vision Paper: The Future of Media Innovation
This Vision Paper has been developed by the Policy Hub of MediaRoad to help Europe’s media sector revamp the way it approaches innovation by shaping future research and policy priorities.
The culmination of the Horizon 2020 period and current efforts to prepare its successor, Horizon Europe, provide a good opportunity to develop MediaRoad’s vision for the future of research and innovation in the European radio and audiovisual sectors. Indeed, these sectors play a crucial role in helping to answer European and global challenges as well as societal and economic changes.
Thus, in this context, the Vision Paper provides policy recommendations to support the digital transition of European media sectors, and particularly radio and audiovisual, in order to foster media innovation in the future.
