Boundaries and Borders in Media Growth

Many opinion leaders from EU countries are working in a vacuum. In Alpbach they will come together to exchange ideas on Europe and the media, including their concerns
from the use of the media as an instrument to today s cost-cutting pressures
as well as the great opportunities the media will offer in the future.
A forum for European media figures as well as their partners from all over the world.
