The audiovisual and radio archives are vivid testimonies of our history and cultural identities. Preserving and facilitating access to our cultural heritage has a crucial role to play in building the future of Europe. These stories deserve to be seen and heard to inspire future generations and nurture our creative industries across Europe.
On 25 September, the EBU will bring together media and archive specialists, policy makers and entrepreneurs to discuss how we can best protect, develop and open up the audiovisual memory of Europe. As financial challenges put at risk many of these archives, Public Service Media are leading the way in developing innovative strategies to make archives more accessible and attractive to all Europeans.

The connected vehicle market is one of the fastest growing segments of the Internet of Things. Common standards will underpin the ability of these technologies to create a single European market for connected and autonomous driving.
Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) is one such standard, which based on LTE, can connect vehicles to each other and to roadside infrastructure with extremely low latency, the capacity for high-speed use cases, and a global perspective as C-V2X will be deployed consistently across the world. A time of such intense sectoral transformation, requires a policy commitment to technology neutrality so that the market and users can choose the best option for future use. The mobile sector is very concerned about the Commission’s Delegated Act on C-ITS potentially excluding C-V2X by favouring a specific Wi-Fi based technology (known as ITS-G5).
This event is by invitation-only and will gather 20 selected key decision-makers and experts on the topic.
It is with great pleasure and anticipation that my colleague, Ventislav Karadjov, Chairman of the Bulgarian Data Protection Commission, and I will host you for the 2018 International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners in Brussels!
The responsibility to deliver this well-established, high-level annual meeting this year is an honour for both of our institutions and comes with a few novelties. For instance, it is the first time in the conference’s almost 40 year history that a European Union (EU) institution has been selected to host it.
To address their changing role in society, universities need to embrace initiatives in support of Open Science, interdisciplinarity, innovative education, entrepreneurship, as well as collaboration with industry.
As part of the Alliance’s joint mission to address major societal challenges by connecting innovation ecosystems across borders, the EuroTech Universities are at the forefront of promoting modernization, excellence and societal impact.
With Horizon Europe and the Modernization of European Higher Education high on the agenda, the event will stimulate a high-level debate on the opportunities and challenges the “university of the future” is facing – and what this means for future EU policies and programmes.
