In 2016, the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) enters its second year of activity thanks to the renewed support of the European Commission. Through the cooperation among its 6 consortium partners - the Media Foundation of the Sparkasse Leipzig , initiator of the ECPMF based in Leipzig; OBC Transeuropa (Trentino); Oxygen for Information (Rome); South East Europe Media Organisation (Vienna); Journalismfund.eu (Brussels); and the Institute of European Media Law (Saarbrücken) - the ECPMF project aims to protect and promote press freedom and promote transnational public debate on violations registered in Europe .
Liaising with several other European entities active in defending media freedom across the continent, OBC Transeuropa will raise awareness of the situation of freedom of information in six member states of the European Union, in the Enlargement and Eastern Partnership countries through:
1) a transnational journalistic campaign along with 14 media partners by publishing and disseminating news and analyses aimed at increasing information and debate on relevant topics;
2) the further development of the Resource Centre on Media Freedom in Europe ;
3) the initiative #Wiki4MediaFreedom which builds on the work initiated by the Wikipedian in Residence hosted at OBC in 2015.
