Streaming Europe

The research group imec-SMIT-Vrije Universiteit Brussel is delighted to invite you to the 2022 media symposium entitled Streaming Europe. The theme of this year’s edition is VOD market positioning strategies in Europe. The discussions will focus on shifting business models for European streaming services, hybrid VOD services, and media collaborations. Join us as we try to identify future growth areas for European players, understand the challenges and opportunities provided by increasingly complex services, and discuss the pros and cons of partnerships in the European VOD landscape with representatives of several on-demand services that operate both at local and transnational level.

Streaming Europe targets the academic community, as well as industry representatives, and policymakers in Member States and at EU level. The symposium is part of the Day of Communication Sciences – Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap. Etmaal attendees automatically have access to the event and do not need to register again.
