Limited Capacity filling up

The roundtable is dedicated to outlining the changes in funding for research in media and communications in recent years. It will report on the preliminary work of a Task Force established by ECREA (European Communication Research and Education Association) to investigate this issue. The work has been provoked by a widespread and increasing concern that research in our field has, in recent years, been pushed by funding priorities towards more  applied, industry-focused research including projects which are conducted in close partnership with media industries,  at the expense of more critical, theoretical or long(er)-term work. The Task Force is also concerned to see whether research in our field is being funded sufficiently in general, and whether there is any shift between funding at national and European levels. The Task Forcebrings together scholars from different European regions and is a first step in producing a systematic mapping of the changing European landscape of funding for research in media and communications conducted by ECREA.  It is hoped that participants at this round table will be able to offer informed comment and suggestions at this mid-stage in the work of the Task Force.
