Enabling growth of a thriving media ecosystem in Europe - STADIEM Final Event

The STADIEM team would like to invite you to join its Brussels event “Enabling growth of a thriving media ecosystem in Europe”.

STADIEM is the first pan-European accelerator program dedicated to the media sector with the aim to foster the development of next generation internet solutions. During this half-day event, you'll discover why and how the STADIEM accelerator fits within the EU media policy objectives, which 32 scale-up-driven innovation projects it has supported so far, and how it has addressed market needs. The STADIEM project, funded by the EU and bringing together four leading mediatech innovation hubs and innovation experts in Europe, will present its insights and its road forward to continue the accelerators' journey and relevance for the European media sector.

The event will end at 13,00 with a free networking lunch held in the same room, and it’s free of charge, but registration is mandatory, due to limited seats.

Once tickets are sold out you can apply for a waiting list for re-distribution of canceled tickets.
