Stakeholder Survey
Contribution to Policy Dialogue

Dear Participant,

through this survey, the i3 project aims to gather information from stakeholders on the most important issues that need to be taken into account, at a political level, to improve and empower the Media Convergence sector.

The overall aim is to collect up to date information and translate it into policy guidelines for the European Commission to influence on-going and future discussions on the European Research Agenda for the next Framework Programme.

You will be asked to answer six structured questions on the challenges and opportunities that need to be discussed to make the sector stronger.
The survey should take about 5 minutes to be completed.

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

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

Further information on the i3 project is available at http://i3project.eu/
