The EUscreen consortium has welcomed Maastricht University as a new partner into the project. The university will be represented by Professor dr. Andreas Fickers, currently working as an Associate Professor for comparative media history at the faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. He has also worked for the University of Utrecht where he has been involved in Video Active, the precursor of EUscreen. Dr. Andreas Fickers is one of the founders of the European Television History Network, an academic network which is closely involved in EUscreen. The work of Maastricht University will mainly focus on the contextualisation of audiovisual content and addressing the academic community.
EUscreen is always looking for opportunities to enlarge it’s consortium and network. Currently, we have a special interest in audiovisual archives. If you would like to join, please contact us.
