Contacts - European Communication Monitor

The European Communication Monitor is a joint project by leading professional and academic organisations (read more about the » Partners). We will be happy to present results, give interpretations and interviews on national data, or talk about future collaboration opportunities.

Please note that the ECM is a non-profit endeavour. All results are provided for personal and academic purposes only. Due to privacy policies, raw data is not available. Presentations for professional and in-house purposes require extra efforts which have to be negotiated.
