The series of seminars constituted an integral part of the European Regional Initiative on Digital Broadcasting for Europe and assisted Member States in handling the transition from analogue to digital broadcasting. They provided a platform for exchange of best practices with regards to the migration as well as the ways to maximize the economic and social benefits of the digital dividend. The seminars developed a harmonized approach to enhancing the advantages to the digital dividend for Central-Eastern Europe.
Following recommendations from the seminars, ITU EUR facilitated a survey on the status of the digitalization process in Central and Eastern Europe.
In addition, ITU EUR facilitated a twinning programme between Albania and Poland that led towards a study visit of a group of Albanian experts to Poland to exchange knowledge and experience in the field of digital broadcasting. The programme evolved into a sound framework for bilateral cooperation on related issues.
