The European Broadcasting Union developed a future strategy for public broadcasters in Europe. What will the public broadcasters look like in 2020? What kind of programmes will they make; in which ways will they be active on the Internet and in social media; with whom will they cooperate; and how will they improve their contact with the public?
These are a few of the many questions which the EBU, in cooperation with its members, addressed in VISION2020. I supported this strategy project, together with the project’s leader Ruurd Bierman, former member of the Board of Managing Directors of the NPO. The proceedings vary from the organization and preparation of meetings with EBU members, supporting the project team, organizing a Trends Conference and giving presentations, to writing and editing the final report and managing the production of an App. You can find more information about the project at the website: http://vision2020.ebu.ch
