“NGI Talks” with Pierre-Yves Danet
October 22, 2020 @ 13:00 - 14:00Free
Join the upcoming NGI Talk, on 22nd of October @ 13:00 CET, and find out how and why The New European Media Initiative commits to mainstream responsible research and innovation approaches for ensuring that technology and content-based innovations are human-centric, inclusive, accessible and addresses societal and environmental challenges along the way.
Media and Creative and Cultural industries have always been a strong and independent sector of significant value in Europe, based on our cultural heritage and values, combining the power of private initiative and governmental actions for the good of the people. Currently, the media ecosystem has grown in the international context, characterized by global players, business activities and market scope on one side and convergence of technical standards one another side, where Europe needs to work towards a more robust media ecosystem, being able to compete with other world regions while ensuring the independence of its own media and creative sector. Therefore, the underlying media distribution network architectures and platforms need to be in European control, and we need to take the regulatory measures, but also the necessary investments to implement it and make it happen.
The New European Media Initiative understands itself as an agent towards this challenge, assembling views of media and creative sectors in Europe with respect to the needed future research and innovation activities.
This event is free and open to all the interested stakeholders and you can FREE REGISTER HERE!
