The annual New Radio Day is the meeting point for those working in radio innovation across EBU organizations.

Members come together to share projects, describe best practices, and learn from each others’ innovations and approach. This event unites programme-making and technology expertise, given that successful public service media needs both great content and attractive presentation and delivery. ​

Keeping close to the audience, understanding their changing needs and preferences, is key to the future success of public media.
