CITI-IMMAA Seminar: Ivana Kostovska, Free University of Brussels (VUB)

This event is organized by Zvezdan Vukanovic from the University of Donja Gorica in Montenegro. The seminar will focus on investment obligations of video-on-demand providers in several countries. Australia proposed a two-tier system of investment obligations that would require large SVOD providers to meet a minimum level of Australian content expenditures. In Canada, there have been calls for investment obligations. In Europe, 13 countries require transnational VOD providers to invest in local content. There are also restrictive levies on market participants. 

The seminar will examine nations where investment obligations exist and analyze their effect on production and investments. 

Ivana Kostovska is a media economics researcher at imec-SMIT-VUB in Brussels, Belgium. Her research is focused on support mechanisms and their impact on the film and audiovisual industries. She is interested in the changes driven by the rise of global OTT players and platforms. Ivana served on the board of the European Media Management Association.

CITI-IMMAA Seminar: Marcus Englert, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Rocket Internet

This presentation, by an entreprenuer, will shed light on the role of media entrepreneurship. What role does it play for incumbent media companies and for start-ups that will shape the media landscape? How do investors make decisions in uncertain times? And what does Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle tell us about it? Are there international differences? Where do investors come from? And what does this mean for the future of the media?
