Who we are

The Think-and-do-tank for healthy media in Europe

Fondation EURACTIV is a think-and-do-tank dedicated to fostering a healthy media community in Europe. It was set up in 2004 as a ‘Fondation d’Utilité Publique’ under Belgian law.

Our goals

We aim in particular to:
  • Support a healthy media sector by fostering a more proactive EU media policy
  • Advocate for media independence, media pluralism and language diversity in Europe

  • Support media coverage of EU policy both at a national and local level

  • Promote media innovation projects for media and related stakeholders

In turn, this will contribute to a healthy democracy and the emergence of a European public sphere. This requires also innovation for the media sector. Fondation EURACTIV seeks to contribute to this need, notably by thinking what a strong EU media strategy should look like.

Our values

EURACTIV Media Network is a separate organisation which coordinates the news media in 13 languages. However, it inspired Fondation EURACTIV with whom it shares the same offices, values and founder.
