Commission launches €12 million worth of calls to support EU news media and public space.
Four new calls aim to stimulate a vibrant and diverse public sphere and promote citizens' access to reliable information across the EU. One of these supports multilingual media content on EU affairs via digital platforms, while the other aims to increase content production in this area via a network of radio stations. In addition, a pilot project will support youth media networks to produce stimulating content on topical issues through social media formats and events. In addition, a preparatory action for media platforms aims to improve citizens' access to trusted information, involving broadcasters and publishers.
