European Union of radio-television
The European Union of radio-television ( UER ), in English European Broadcasting Union ( EBU ) is the most important professional association of national broadcasters in the world with (in 2004) 74 active members in 54 countries of Europe, North Africa and the the Middle East, and 44 associated members in 25 countries of other areas of the world.
Founded in 1950 by the pioneers of the radio and television in Western Europe, it amalgamated in 1993 with the OIRT, the old union of the broadcasters of Eastern Europe.
Installed in Geneva, it acts for the account of its members, negotiates the rights of diffusion of the sporting great events, exploits the networks Eurovision and Euroradio.
The Union also organizes exchanges of programs, stimulates and coordinates coproductions, provides all the services operational, commercial, technical, legal and strategic useful to its members. In Brussels, the office of the UER represents the interests of the broadcasters of public service near the European institutions.
The UER collaborates narrowly with the unions sisters of the other continents: the ABU (Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union), the NABA (North American Broadcasters' Association), the URTNA (Union of the radios and national televisions of Africa), the ASBU (Arab States Broadcasting Union) and the OTI (Organización of Televisión Iberoamericana).
