TV Science and Knowledge Experts

Participating, networking, watching, sharing are the keywords of the Science and Knowledge Experts; by getting to know each other better, we can enhance the ways we work together.

The TV Science & Knowledge Experts meets once a year in plenary session with the aim to encourage broadcasters to foster the above described approach.

With parallel working sessions devoted to different topics/themes (case studies, pitching sessions, screenings, best practices…) the TV Science & Knowledge Experts meeting provides broadcasters with the tools for creating an international, professional network. It is the first and indispensable step for establishing successful working groups.

This group includes over 80 professionals (head of programmes, commissioning editors) coming from public service broadcasters from more than 30 countries in and around Europe. Through Eurovision TV, the broadcasters work together through different genres and models of cooperation.

Broadcasters can pool financial resources and commission production companies to coproduce enjoyable and successful TV programmes (Coproductions). They can also exchange existing programmes, or decide together to create new series through the model of the exchange: through which broadcasters offer and receive programmes or segments of certain types and genres (Collections).

Along the “Sunny-side of the Doc Festival” in La Rochelle (France) the group organizes an own pitching session focusing on science topics.
