A new portal has been launched by the European Union: PRESSEUROP.EU. It aims to become a major provider of general and political information concerning European current affairs. Under the terms of its contract it enjoys complete editorial freedom, and gathers its information independently from a wide range of sources.
Another service that expresses the European Institutions’ wish to to facilitate, encourage and support the establishment of a European public forum for communication, discussion and debate is euranet, the European Radio Network.
A third service to support euranet and presseurop.eu, EU TV Net, is scheduled to launch in 2010.
