NEM Vision 2030

(April 2020)

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 the 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 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 in respect to the needed future research and innovation activities. In this document, the NEM Initiative presents a new vision for the European media and creative industries sectors for the next decade.
