Call for EU study on showing film in European schools
The European Commission has published a new tender for a study on showing films and other audiovisual content in European schools. The estimated value of the tender is €300,000 and the deadline is 30 June 2013.
The European Commission is currently developing its media literacy policy, especially the inclusion of media literacy in school curricula. The intention is that the study will contribute towards development of the literacy policy, particularly in regard to school curricula. To support policy development, the Commission requires more information on the current situation and therefore seeks assistance in the form of a report mapping obstacles and good practices within the field.
The objective of the study will be three-fold:
Firstly, it should provide the European Commission with a European-scale experts' study, which identifies and analyses the existing situation concerning the use of audiovisual content in schools in Europe. This will include both curriculum and extra-curriculum use of such content in schools, not including higher education.
Secondly, it should identify obstacles and good practises for the use of films and other audiovisual content in schools, including licensing models for educational use.
Thirdly, it should provide the Commission with recommendations on how to strengthen its work within the context of media literacy policy, and in other policy fields.
The contractor shall execute the tasks assigned to him in accordance with the tender specifications, which are available here at the web site of MEDIA.
