It was officially constituted in Cairo in 1996, with the approval of its By-laws by 63 organisations, among which 28 broadcasters. More than 20 years of cooperation in the audiovisual field, more than 100 members from the whole Euro-Mediterranean area, among which 39 broadcasters of the Region.
.....................  Strategy, method and outcome: the “COPEAM formula” is rooted on the promotion and the exchange of know-how and expertise that constitute its network. An important action vis-à-vis the European institutions to claim policies of support to the Euro-Mediterranean audiovisual sector; permanent partnership with the “sister associations” in the European and Arab areas (EBU and ASBU); innovative multilateral projects in the field of training, able to mobilize and involve young professionals from the whole Euro-Mediterranean zone, as far as the Gulf countries; coordination of international co-productions (radio and TV) and of initiatives promoting the “Mediterranean product”; organisation of forums and meetings on topical current issues concerning the media sector.
Audiovisual topics, but not only. COPEAM proposes itself as a laboratory of a new way of making cooperation.
