Fondation Euractiv: Media Policy: Europe’s Media Lab
Europe’s Media Lab is a series of events designed to enrich the conversation on the sector’s needs at EU level among media professionals and policy makers. It is a one-in-5-year opportunity to have a healthy media sector as an “EU priority”.
Europe has a key role to play in ensuring the right ecosystem for a healthy media sector, notably: evening out the playing field with social platforms, safeguarding the right to expression, allowing favourable taxation for the media, as well as other direct and indirect measures. Europe’s media sector is facing unprecedented challenges today. For this reason, the credibility and viability of quality journalism, and the sustainability of the media sector as a whole are at stake.
