The president of the Catalan Audio-visual Council (CAC), Roger Loppacher, and the president of the Catalan Audio-visual Cluster, Xavier Guitart, have signed a collaboration framework agreement between these two institutions. The signing event was held at the CAC’s headquarters.
The framework agreement stimulates the collaboration between both parties to increase the promotion, knowledge, dissemination, and strength of the Catalan audio-visual sector, as well as the promotion of mechanisms to guarantee the rights of users and the protection of minors.
Specifically, this agreement states that both organizations will cooperate in order to create and strengthen dialogue and commonalities between public and private DTT and FM communications service providers, telecommunication operators, providers of new communication services, audio-visual content production companies, technology companies and companies developing mobile applications.
Moreover, this agreement stipulates that both the CAC and the Cluster will work together on projects, research and vitalization activities related to the audio-visual sector. Especially, it will promote research and awareness of new audio-visual communication services, new screens and new business models.
The CAC will also invite the Cluster members to participate in the Forum of Communication of Catalonia and in roundtable discussions hosted by the CAC to debate about subjects concerning the audio-visual field and sector regulation.
