The NEM Summit, organised every year since 2008 by the NEM Initiative in close cooperation with leading industrial and academic players worldwide, is the “not-to-be-missed” annual event for all those interested in Future Internet developments and in the fast paced evolution of the European media industry.
The very first part of the event, held at Charlemagne building will include the European Commission DG CONNECT G1 Unit (Converging media & content) Information Day. This will be followed by the NEM General Assembly at Flagey, which will gather many ICT clusters, universities, federations, associations, SMEs, and large companies. The first day will finish with a networking cocktail shared with the community of @diversity (an European project on innovative ideas for the cultural and creative sector in Europe) where attendees will be able to meet new potential partners from ICT and creative industries.
The second day will be divided into two big parts. On the morning, the NEM technology session will be composed of interesting keynote speeches on technology, market and business trends.
This year TISP will contribute with a keynote speech by Holger Volland, VP of Frankfurt Book Fair and TISP partner, dedicated to explore the growing integration between publishing and technology and the opportunities of mutual enrichment for both sectors .
On the afternoon, the NEM Creativity Workshops, organised by third party projects or companies in the various rooms of Flagey, will create an opportunity for NEM participants to discover their technologies, leading the Future of Europe in the field of connected media.
NEM is the Horizon 2020 European Technology Platform (ETP) dedicated to content, and the acronym’s meaning has recently been changed to stand for “New European Media” (formerly “Network and Electronic Media”), with the strapline: “Connected media & content for innovation and creativity in digital Europe”.
