This network is dedicated to studying, analysing and discussing benefits and challenges of digital platforms in Europe and world-wide. Companies such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft are currently setting universal standards for online services, including media and communication. But their practices not always comply with European values such as openness, inclusivity, transparency, privacy, cooperation, and protection of data.
By bringing together knowledge and research capacity from all over Europe and beyond, EuromediApp provides space for national and transnational deliberation on how future digital services should and will be governed. Working papers, teaching material, workshops, conferences and dedicated schools for advanced students are our working tools.
Core partners of the EuromediApp are the Universities of Leuven (Belgium), Minho (Portugal), Padova (Italy), Budapest (Hungary), Kaunas (Lithuania), Helsinki (Finland) and Salzburg (Austria).
