EURACTIV launches new 'Digital & Media' hub

EURACTIV has launched its new ‘Digital & Media hub’ this week to better report on all key developments, positive and negative, in the field of media, a sector that often does not receive quite the attention it deserves. 

There are two main changes taking place in the media landscape: increasing challenges to democracy and rule of law, but also increased opportunity as media become predominantly digital. Our new Digital & Media hub enables us to invest in more reporting and analysis of these two macro-trends which are already transforming the European public sphere,” says Zoran Radosavljevic, EURACTIV’S Editor-in-Chief.

Earlier this week, Vice President of the European Commission for Values & Transparency Věra Jourová spoke with Samuel Stolton, Editor of EURACTIV’s Digital Hub, about the new Digital & Media hub and about the state of play of media freedom in Europe more generally, noting that this new focus in EURACTIV is timely and could play a constructive role in strengthening Europe’s democracy, which largely relies on strong, independent media.

The extension of EURACTIV’s Digital hub to Media is supported by Europe’s MediaLab, and by the exchange programme stars4media that it initiated. This project, supported by 60 stakeholders is co-funded by the EU at the European Parliament’s request. The consortium is led by VUB university, and also includes WAN-IFRA (the largest publishers’ association), and the European Federation of Journalists (regrouping trade unions).

EU policy around digital and media innovation are closely related, as explained in this Op-Ed on leadership, published on EURACTIV.
