Partnership Programme

The EBU’s Partnership Programme reflects the core principle of solidarity that underpins our association. In boosting collaboration, strengthening support and enabling all Members to benefit from the EBU’s activities, it reinforces our unique community of public service media organizations.

We support eligible Members with:

  • Access to hundreds of hours of high-quality European programmes made available by fellow EBU Members
  • In-depth consultancies on strategy development
  • Training through the EBU Academy
  • Legal and technical advice from EBU experts
  • Representation of the Member’s political and financial interests at the highest government levels.

The Partnership Programme is a clearly identified fund from the EBU’s earmarked reserve that drives an action plan for eligible Members. It complements other solidarity initiatives across the EBU, including European Commission-funded programmes and EBU Academy Regional Hubs.


The Partnership Programme is intended primarily to serve EBU Members with limited financial resources or challenging political circumstances. Depending on the type of services provided, activities can be fully or partially funded. We assess eligible Members using several indicators that include:

  • World Bank statistics
  • EBU membership fee units paid
  • A Member’s operating expenditure as a proportion of national GDP

As Member circumstances can change more rapidly than official available data, we also consider cases on a discretionary basis.
