What is it?
NEM stands for “New European Media”. The primary aim of the NEM Initiative is to provide a platform that fosters “the convergence among media, content, creative industries, social media, broadcasting and telecom sectors, as well as consumer electronics to develop a common innovation environment for the new European media landscape.” Every year, NEM hosts a big event: the NEM Summit.
Its 2017 program consists of various strands. The morning of day 1 will focus on EU policies and strategies, upcoming calls for projects and future strategic orientations of NEM. The afternoon then sees three keynote presentations and a plenary session on new formats.
Day 2 has two parallel tracks throughout the day covering the following topics:
- cultural heritage and digital tourism
- the future of digital media
- the future of social media
- building the FMI ecosystem through experimentation
- personalisation and accessibility
- cluster excellence for digital creative industries
Attendees can also attend the exhibition that runs throughout the summit.
Why are we there?
On Wednesday, November 29th at 2pm, our Jochen Spangenberg will deliver a keynote presentation on the misinformation ecosystem, titled “‘What the F _ _ _!?’: Handling and verifying social media content.”
Furthermore we will use the opportunity to find out more about and discuss the state-of-play in the media business, showcase our verification platform Truly Media, discuss potential future cooperation opportunities in the context of our research activities (for an overview see our current project portfolio), and do a lot of networking.
Jochen Spangenberg will represent our team throughout the whole event. If you want to meet up with him, drop him a line (e.g. via Twitter or by mail), or just approach him for a chat if you see him around.
