European network of media innovation incubators.

Partners: BBC, imec, EBU, AER, IRT, Cepi tv, EPA, RAI,

Within the European MediaRoad innovation project, the successful VRT Sandbox model is being transformed into a replicable model for other European broadcasters. Together with partners as the EBU, BBC and RAI, VRT helps build a network for accelerators of media innovation: the Sandbox Hub. Entrepreneurs, startups, as well as SMEs with media-related concepts involving technology, journalism, social media and content, are able to apply for a project. Each Sandbox will operate independently, but be interlinked across Europe through a platform to share success cases for broader implementation. 

MediaRoad has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 761412.
