PopNet Europe - European pop music network
PopNet Europe is a network of institutions which promote youth culture in Europe with the medium of pop music. The network has the aim to improve the European collaboration of the institutions working with young people making pop music. This implies, among other things, the improvement of communication and the exchange of information, regular meetings and maintenance of specialists exchange as well as a lasting development of funding structures.
The network believes that the promotion of pop music should be realised in social fields like education, youth culture, culture and music management, which are addressed equally. Only for pragmatical reasons, PopNet Europe has its basics in the fields of youth, education and culture. In 2007, the official kick-off was a first specialists meeting in Stuttgart. 70 European specialists from youth and culture work got together and worked out the basis for a network as well as the approach to the subject and to the tasks. First priority was to have the information available for everybody. This should be achieved by creating the communication platform www.eupop.net.
Furthermore, the platform wants to present the actors in the field of pop music promotion, so that the search for potential project cooperation partners can be simplified. With the help of the website, it is possible to provide tools and an overlook of the existent projects to the users.
