University - 21 July 2020

With the project Platformization of European Media: Assessing Negative and Positive Externalities - EUMEPLAT, IULM University has won, as lead partner, the Horizon 2020 Europe in a Changing World Call for Proposals.

Horizon2020 is the main funding programme for research and innovation in Europe for the period 2014-2020.
With a budget of around €80 billion, Horizon2020 finances all stages of research and innovation, from basic idea to market application, with a particular focus on the impact that the results of the funded projects will have on society. The aim of Horizon 2020 is to support research and innovation: one of the five headline targets of Europe 2020, the European Union's strategy for the decade 2010-202020. In line with this Strategy, H2020 aims to contribute, in particular, to the realisation of a society based on knowledge and innovation, oriented towards the major priorities set out in the European Agenda for 2020: smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

We are proud to announce that IULM University has won, as lead partner, the call Horizon 2020 Europe in a Changing World - Inclusive, Innovative and reflective societies", Research and Innovation, Call Innovation 10/2020: Evolving Media Landscapes and Europeanisation, thanks to the project Platformization of European Media: Assessing Negative and Positive Externalities - EUMEPLAT.

The EUMEPLAT project, coordinated by Prof. Andrea Miconi, lasts three years and aims to analyse the role that media platforms play in promoting or dismantling European identity. In particular, it will deepen the process of creation and stabilization of the platforms by analyzing their positive and negative effects. One of the topics will be to try to understand whether or not platforms such as YouTube, Netflix or NewsFeed make European culture more "European", based on indicators concerning production, consumption and modes of representation.
