On Thursday 24 May, European media stakeholders will gather together for a Policy Dialogue lunch event in the European Parliament in Brussels with industry leaders, academics, creative sector representatives and innovators in the field of media. It is a key event addressing media innovation support schemes for the media industry in the upcoming FP9 Framework programme beyond-2020.
The European media industry is facing profound digital transformation. Media is fast integrating advances like Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics, High performance computing, 5G and others while at the same time is called to tackle new challenges like fake news, data security, and role of the global platforms and new concentrations of power, which are also impacting the democratic discourse.
In this context, Media Innovation and Research (R&I) has never been so pivotal for the future developments of the sector.
