  • Strengthen exchanges of information concerning audiovisual production;
  • Develop commercial relations between European producers;
  • Create a network of information and dialogue about the various problems affecting the profession in Europe, whether economic, legal, technical, social or other;
  • Promote the interests of independent producers vis-a-vis the various European, national and international authorities.
