Contact Engineers Group

The Contact Engineers Group support the EBU and its radio organizations' productions (programme people, international relations, etc.) to achieve the highest possible technical quality of the Euroradio network exchanges. In this regard, they collaborate with the EBU Classical Music Group on the Sound Engineers Scheme

The Contact Engineers take account of technical evolutions and propose improvements to the EBU, while liaising closely with all EBU radio organizations. They know the production chain from concert hall to destination, and organize day-to-day operations. They prevent and solve problems.

The Contact Engineers' most recent annual meeting was held on 6 June 2019 in Rome at the kind invitation of RAI.
