Implementing Open Innovation:

  • Brings to the forefront products and services that allow Public Service Media organizations to better serve digital audiences;
  • Explores the local or national digital innovation landscape – start-ups, other media actors, universities – in which EBU Members operate and highlights existing strategic partnerships;
  • Examines the major corporate culture change that the gradual shift to IP, IT, data and cloud-driven technologies brings about, the opportunities it creates, and how it impacts the way professionals work and the way content is produced.
