Media workshop

Ministergärten 8, D-10117 Berlin

February 10, 2005

The Media workshop focuses on practical aspects of national and transnational media cooperation and media economics. Our main aims are to present terms of media economics and structures in Poland and Sweden, to inform about regional, national and supranational  financial support  programmes and to give a review of legal preconditions of media cooperation in the Baltic Sea Area. It is imperative to use the opportunities resulting from the cultural changes and the development of basic political parameters in the Baltic Sea Area. Working languages are English and German. Participation is offered free of charge.
