MINE connects

fresh European research to practitioner reflection on the state and future of media industries. The network offers a forum for bringing industry practitioners, new and established scholars, and policy experts into a lively dialogue, supporting research, teaching, and creative practice by a number of activities crossing disciplinary and national borders. MINE puts a particular emphasis on industries, countries and regions which traditionally have been overlooked by the prevailing focus on industries in larger and Anglophone countries. It puts a spotlight on emergent and peripheral industries which are influenced by and dependent on stronger media centres and geopolitical powers. MINE fosters research on audiovisual media entertainment from a multidisciplinary perspective combining the humanities (film and media studies, cultural history, aesthetics) and the social sciences (economics, sociology, anthropology).

MINE's mission is to bring together scholars, media practitioners and policymakers to:
1. create a forum for the interdisciplinary and transnational study of European media industries;
2. promote innovative methods of critical empirical research into media practices;
3. offer innovative formats for publishing research and practitioner reflections;
4. foster cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue in media industries and creative labour;
5. reflect upon the effects of globalization on media production communities and careers.
