IRMO is the coordinator of this two-year project that will promote discussion and reflection on the role that European Union policies have on the online platforms impacting cultural and audio-visual sectors. The project will be implemented through events, research and dissemination: five-day postgraduate course on policies related to platformisation of cultural and audiovisual sectors in the EU, masterclass on the role that the European Union plays for audiovisual platforms, and lecture/debates on the European dimension of the (creative) platform economy. In the project’s events the emphasis will be put on active participation of the students and young professionals, enabling them to encounter various stakeholders (e.g. policy-makers, experts) for in-depth discussion and reflection. In order to provide for decentralisation of activities, the planned events will be organized with local project partners in Dubrovnik, Rijeka, Zadar and Zagreb. Project ‘platEU’ aims to ensure better position of the EU digital and cultural policies research in the curricula of existing and future programmes, and to kindle interest in digital culture in Europe. Research stream of the project is dedicated to development of open access policy briefs and to the publication of the special issue of a scientific journal. The outputs will serve as educational materials on EU digital policy issues, in the framework of the existing European studies and cultural and media policy programmes.
