CONFERENCE “RISING STARS FOR MEDIA COOPERATION”
Media4EU is launching the Stars4Media pilot project
Presentation & Reception
Tuesday 26 September 2017 | 17:00 – 19:00
Venue: Conference Room, 2nd floor, EURACTIV, International Press Centre, Bvd Charlemagne 1, 1000 Brussels
Extensive interviews and meetings with publishers, editors and MEPs from across Europe make it clear that there is a strong demand for a different type of media cooperation and exchanges.
That is why the Institut d’études européennes at the Université libre de Bruxelles joins forces and “savoir-faire” with Fondation EURACTIV and the Press Club Brussels Europe to promote this skill-building project for media professionals: #Stars4Media (#Erasmus4Media).
Fondation EURACTIV is working with the European Parliament on a pilot project proposal which could launch the initiative in 2018. We would love you to be a part of it!
We believe that cross-border on-the-job exchanges are the most effective way to tackle the crisis of the European media sector. The basis of the concept is to exchange up-and-coming professionals across borders to develop innovative and sustainable solutions and share best practices with senior managers.
