News Media Europe is hosting a webinar on “State aid for the media in Europe” on Wednesday 4th of May at 10.30 CET. Please register here.
State aid tools play a key role in the media systems of many European countries. As policy makers across the continent examine options on how best to support a vibrant and pluralistic information landscape to respond to rapidly evolving industry conditions, many countries have recently reformed relevant laws or are considering doing so.
To keep track of all these changes, News Media Europe has compiled a comparative document, which will be shared after the webinar, to help interested parties understand what current policy practice looks like across different European countries.
The webinar will explore some of the key findings and recent policy developments in this field in search of trends, best practice and recurrent themes to inform relevant debates. It is a public webinar open to industry, policy-makers, researchers and anyone else interested in the issues under discussion.
