We are pleased to announce today the launch of MEDEA, an independent High Level Group set up by the Italian Chapter of the International Institute of Communicationsand operating in the Mediterranean area.
We strongly believe that the Mediterranean has an increasing strategic role to play in the international debate on media and digital policies. Therefore, MEDEA has been created with the aim of pursuing this goal, focusing on digital transformation and the role of media and information as a positive factor for human and social growth.
To do this, MEDEA will provide avarious range of activities such as studies, researches, conferences and trainings.
