EuRoman

This is the current list as of April 3rd of 60 moral supporters to the pilot project proposal. In addition to 30 media interviewed in 6 countries under the prior #Media4EU research and editorial project.

[ The pilot project name is under consideration. ‘Erasmus4Media’ explains it well (and the root has been used eg for ‘Erasmus for young entrepreneurs’). But other names might stress better a) this is not about students, or training only, b) it concerns promising young media professionals, not only journalists, and the cross-border projects they carry. Views welcome separately]
