Welcome to MediaMotorEurope!

We started the implementation of MediaMotorEurope, an international project, funded under Horizon 2020 although with a serious delay. But now everything is delaying for known and logical reasons. Bulgaria participates in this project through the Cluster Sofia Knowledge City. The project aims to nurture high-potential European deep tech innovators, solving today’s most prominent media industry challenges and support them in building media solutions for tomorrow. The plan is to build a strong and vibrant European deep-tech ecosystem targeting the media and the creative industries.

A project under Horizon 2020 will start soon

The Cluster Sofia Knowledge City has signed a contract for the implementation of the MediaMotorEurope (MME) project, funded under Horizon 2020 - H2020-ICT-2019-2 in a consortium with European partners. The value of the project is EUR 1.952 million and its implementation will start from January 1, 2020, and continue until January 31, 2022. MME will stimulate the development of solutions for the media industry needed to tackle such challenges as misinformation, accessibility, user interfaces, and data usage. A group of European high-tech innovative companies will be assisted in the development and implementation of media solutions for the future.
