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.
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.
A think-tank is a policy unit researching and promoting innovative policy solutions. Conversely, a “think-and-do tank” includes activities seeking to prototype its analyses and recommendations. In addition, it acts directly on the policy environment through concrete interventions.
As such, we
Promote debates and the sharing of best practices through conferences, training programmes and workshops
Implement projects fostering media sector’s innovation and skills
