The last national SEE Digi.TV workshop, dedicated to new media and challenges of the audiovisual services regulation, was held just a few weeks before the closure of the project. The Italian project partners Informest and Agcom organized the second national event on 12 July 2013 in Rome with the aim to further promote the project, disseminate its results and deepen the discussion on the important topics that were debated already during the previous Italian event, held in Trieste in February 2013. The workshop stemmed from the conclusions brought over by SEE Digi.TV and was oriented to the future of the television market in Europe, where the market players, users and other stakeholders are facing significant changes.
