European Media Platforms: assessing positive and negative externalities for European Culture

The EUMEPLAT project aims at analyzing the role of media platforms in fostering or dismantling European identity. Drawing on the assumption that European dimension has rarely been dominant in media history and focusing on the “platformization” process and its positive and negative externalities, the main research question is whether or not new platforms are making European culture more European or not.

Our Approach in Assessing European Media Platforms:

  • WHAT?

    EUMEPLAT explores the role of media platforms in fostering or dismantling European identity

  • HOW?

    EUMEPLAT analyzes indicators related to production, consumption and representation and looks for patterns on a national, regional and European level

  • WHY?

    EUMEPLAT provides policy-makers with a better understanding of the contemporary media landscape and future scenarios
