Digital Radio Summit 2013

The highlight of EBU Radio Week (11-15 Februray) will be the Digital Radio Summit, on Wednesday 13 February, bringing together key players from the radio community to share ideas, experiences and inspiration. WorldDMB, DRM and RadioDNS will all hold technical and/or general meetings during Radio Week and there will be another set of RadioHack workshops.

Also, the Digital Radio Summit this year coincides with the UNESCO World Radio Day 2013.

The EBU launched a new technical Recommendation at the Digital Radio Summit today, in Geneva, confident that it will bring added impetus to the rollout of digital radio services across Europe.
