SMIT presents the Student White Paper Series on European Media Markets 2021

SMIT’s Student White Paper Series showcases student-led research. The research was conducted by our graduate students of the European Media Market course of the international Master Programme in Communication Studies at the VUB.

The Student White Paper Series consists of weekly publications of a total of seven White Papers presenting the latest insights and data on European Media Markets from film, TV, to books, press and video games in Europe.

The White Papers present the most recent data from various industry reports and studies, highlight current key data and discuss current changes in the sectors.

We hope the Student White Paper Series, can start a new discussion about the future of Media Markets in Europe and will give valuable new insights to not only other students, but also to academics and practitioners in the media industry in Europe.

The first issue is out today. Click here to check out the first issue of the series titled ‘The European Film Market: Distribution challenges of European film’.

Stay tuned for the next issues of the Student White Paper series coming in the next weeks.
