Stakeholder Survey
Contribution to Policy Dialogue

Dear Ms., Dear Mr.,

Thank you in advance for the attention dedicated to this survey!

Through this questionnaire, the i3 project is gathering information about the most important issues that you are facing in your project on in your company from a policy perspective and about the topics that you think need to be discussed at political level to improve and empower the Media Convergence sector.

In the first survey that took place in November 2016, a first definition of topic has been possible. In this second round, the aim is to collect updated information to be reported in the policy guidelines directed to the European Commission that i3 will produce in the following months.

The survey will take about 10 minutes to be completed. Please answer all questions from your viewpoint in the designated space.

In case some questions are not applicable to your situation, or show aspects you think are not relevant for Media Convergence, please send us your comments/opinions to help us improving the questionnaire.

If you have comments or questions on this questionnaire or you need any support or clarification please contact Simona De Rosa at s.derosa@t-6.it
