Circom Uvigo Chair

What we do

The aim of the CIRCOM Regional-UVigo chair is to carry out case study research on the innovation and digitisation processes within the European regional television broadcasters that belong to the CIRCOM network. It also addresses other areas of research, such as disinformation at regional level, language and culture preservation, and the emotional connection between media and its audience. Additionally, the Chair undertakes several initiatives, among them the participation in CIRCOM thematic training workshops and the creation of Circom-UVigo Hub –a meeting point and knowledge exchange platform between professionals and academics.

How was it created?

The Chair is the result of an agreement between the University of Vigo and CIRCOM Regional –the European Association of Regional Television– with the aim of fostering collaboration between educational institutions and relevant entities in the audiovisual sector while promoting research and training.

What is it for?

The CIRCOM-UVigo Chair was created with the aim of encouraging research and training amid the digital transformation process the European regional public television is currently facing. It also seeks to contribute to strengthening the audiovisual sector, generating academic results that can be applied to the industry and facilitating university-company collaboration for the benefit of society.
