While media platforms can play a role in enhancing a European identity, the European dimension has rarely dominated in media history. Most web platforms are owned by American companies, and market shares are divided among national productions and importations from the United States and other influential countries. The EU-funded EUMEPLAT project will conduct a multidisciplinary analysis to shed light on whether new platforms (YouTube, Netflix and NewsFeed) are making European culture more European. To answer this question, the project will study indicators related to production, consumption and representation. It will also look for patterns on a national, regional and European level.
