Media4Europe conference: Stars4Media and news media’s recovery

During the Media4Europe conference, held on October 14th, 2020, the Stars4Media results were unveiled. This project supports innovation in the media sector, through training and cross-border cooperation: 21 Initiatives were co-financed, involving 105 media professionals from 42 media outlets in 17 countries.

This project is co-funded by the European Commission, based on a ‘rising stars’ budget earmarked by the European Parliament. During the conference, media stakeholders and MEPs – MEP Dace Melbarde (ECR); MEP Margarida Marques (S&D); MEP Ramona Strugariu (Renew Europe); MEP Damian Boeselager (Greens) – considered the continuation of the underlying ‘rising stars’ programme, and agreed that Creative Europe should be increased, including more support to media transformation.
