The PSM Funding and Governance Group considers legal, policy and strategic issues relevant to publicly funded broadcasters. It meets on an ad hoc basis, as required, and is open to legal, public affairs and other interested experts from EBU active Members in receipt of public funding (or a mixture of public and commercial funding).
Our meeting will focus on the implications of Covid-19 for our sector and how we can benefit from State aid/competition policy to mitigate the adverse effects PSM have experienced or will soon experience. More particularly, we will discuss the Temporary Framework on State aids the Commission has recently adopted to allow Member States to grant aids to organizations suffering from the spread of the virus as well as proposals for a relaxed approach to competition enforcement (this could lead to the approval of PSM cooperation agreements).
