IAPMR Newsletter 1/2020
New Resource Site
The Public Media Alliance (PMA), in collaboration with the International Association of Public Media Researchers (IAPMR) and the Center for Media, Data and Society (CEU-CMDS) at the Central European University, has just launched a site for (mostly open access) academic and applied research on public service media:
We hope that this site will be of use to everyone interested in PSM – please share it widely!
Please let us know if you would like us to feature your work. You can do so via the link on the site or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Public Service Media’s Contribution to Society
Submit your abstract by 29 February!
The European Broadcasting Union – EBU and the Department of Communication and Media Research at the University of Fribourg will host the RIPE@2020 conference on October 28-30, 2020, in Geneva (Switzerland). The conference will bring together scholars and PSM professionals from all over the world to discuss Public Service Media’s Contribution to Society.
This tenth biennial RIPE@ conference will offer an opportunity for celebrating RIPE’s legacy and the 70th anniversary of the EBU. It also marks a new beginning: The RIPE initiative is transforming into the International Association of Public Media Researchers (IAPMR).
The conference takes place over two and a half days, starting late on a Wednesday morning, 28 October 2020, and ending on Friday, 30 October 2020, around noon. The conference language is English.

The International Association of Public Media Researchers (IAPMR) will be an association for scholars and industry experts who support Public Media worldwide. It’s a continuation of the RIPE network and, just like RIPE, will feature an online community, a bi-annual conference jointly hosted by a university and their local public service media, and a biannual edited collection of the most world-leading scholarly work for the year of publication.
The activities include:
- Bi-annual conferences
- Related open-access Readers by Nordicom
- Discussions and information exchanges in our social media communities on Facebook and Twitter
IAPMR is in the last parts of the process of attaining its legal association status. We will notify you when the process has been completed and we will warmly invite you to become a member!
