European Media Forum
European Media Forum brings together European Policy Forum’s work on internet, telecoms and communication issues. EMF holds regular telecom policy summits in Brussels and brings together leading experts for London discussions. Most recently, for example, the Chairman of BT, a foundation supporter of the Forum, Sir Michael Rake, joined the Director-General of DG Infso in the European Commission, Fabio Colasanti and the leading BERR official on telecoms policy in Whitehall, David Hendon in a special discussion followed by dinner. EMF's a review of mobile telephone regulation was completed in association with Orange. Its recent studies include an examination of the success of Freeview, supported by the BBC. Another recent study examines regulation of the communications market overall. EMF works with Ofcom in the promotion of informed debate at European level about the policy options in developing a digital Europe with world class digital networks, active engagement of citizens in digital services and in the development of a competitive and creative digital content industry. EMF’s expertise in competition and innovation studies will focus on how Europe can best use competitive open markets to drive innovation and business success.
