FEP-IFRRO-EWC-EVA event on digital education on 16 June

Together with IFRRO, EWC and EVA, FEP is organizing an event on digital education on 16 June from 10-11:30 CEST.

In this second edition of the Re:Start Conversations session the focus will be on authors, publishers and collective management organisations in the text and image sectors, who will discuss, together with representatives from the EU Institutions, the importance of investing in a high-quality digital education ecosystem and how the needs of a democratic society can be met, as well as those of writers, illustrators and publishers in the education sector. A short update, MEP Negrescu (Rapporteur for the Digital Education Action Plan) and the Head of Unit for digital education in DG EAC, Georgi Dimitrov are both confirmed as the opening speakers for the event.

Representing publishers, we are happy to announce Raffaele Grandi, CEO of Edi.Ermes S.r.l, a member of the Italian Publishers Association (AIE).
Mr Grandi will record a demo showing the innovations in educational digital publishing and send it to IFRRO beforehand and the investments required both in terms of financial resources and skills, he will also explain what was done during the lockdowns and why any digital education action plans must involve sufficient means to acquire content.
