The EBU Knowledge Exchange brings together EBU Members, media professionals and communications scholars for a day of discussion and ideas sharing around a current issue affecting public service media (PSM).
The topic for this year's event was PSM Contribution to Society, building on the key project being led by the EBU’s Media Intelligence Service, which analyses how to evaluate and communicate the positive impact that public service media have on society.
The event discussed the benefits that PSM generate for the market, the national economy, the civil society and the individuals. The idea was to develop a framework to assess PSM’s contribution, identifying indicators, best practices and new ideas. To achieve this, the event included a programme of participative activities alongside inspiring keynotes and presentations.
Attendees heard from a diverse range of speakers, including several invitees from outside the media sector. They shared their challenges and success stories, showcasing how their organization has approached the task of demonstrating the value they provide to citizens.
This year’s event included a second day exclusively for EBU Members. In this workshop several broadcasters reported on how they assess their contribution to society, leading to a group discussion with a particular focus on the methodology used and the challenges to overcome.
