Networked and Electronic Media Initiative
NEM Initiative was established as one of the European Technology Platforms under the Seventh Framework Program aimed at fostering the convergence between consumer electronics, broadcasting and telecoms in order to develop the emerging business sector of networked and electronic media. In order to respond to new needs and requirements of the Horizon 2020 program, NEM Initiative enlarged its focus toward creative industries and changed its name to New European Media.
NEM constituency includes all major European organizations working in the networked and electronic media area, including content providers, creative industries, broadcasters, network equipment manufacturers, network operators and service providers, academia, standardization bodies and government institutions. Those actors share a common vision and have been producing a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), as well as position papers, in order to accelerate the innovative development of the new sector in a harmonized and fruitful way and to place European industry at the forefront of the information era.
