Germany: Europe's editors meet in Potsdam

Editors of about 100 European print media will meet for the "M100 Sanssouci Colloquium" in Potsdam, Germany, this weekend, reports Der Standard. The conference will focus on the development of Europe, on "the questions and problems of the relationship between the USA and Europe; culture as key to a European self-image; Europe as an economic area and, of course, the state of the European media." Among the participants are Mathias Döpfner, Chief Executive of publisher Axel Springer, and Frank Schirrmacher, editor of "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung", reports Der Standard.

The aim of M100 Sanssouci Colloquium is to build a European media platform: "Our thinking behind the idea of an annual forum in Potsdam to promote discussion of European affairs was to create - for the first time - a pan-European platform for leading opinion formers and media personalities from the whole of Europe."

During this years' conference the Prize of the European Media will be awarded for the first time.
