The European landscape of funding PSM is changing.

According to this, only half of EU members have a licence-fee model of financing PSM (and after conclusion of brexit, there will be less than half!), the Scandinavian media markets and countries have already replaced the licence-fee model to the tax model (Denmark is on the way...). In paralell, public/audiences, and in some countries governments and political parties are asking PSM to operate with less money and more efficiency.

It is challenging PSM remit, scope and scale of their operations, number of channels, and forcing them to change their workflows and structures.

First aim of the workshop is to define the principles of a sustainable model of PSM funding and financing, and determine if the licence-fee model is no longer suitable to deliver on the new expectations and provide sustainable support for PSM remit.
Second aim is to compare known experiences of PSM representing CIRCOM Regional members. We would like to present and explain the legal and financial frameworks of last changes and expectations, particulary to explain what are the impacts on scope and scale of programmes on the regional content and output.

The webinar would unfold as follows:
