Priorities and funded actions:

* Facilitate the mobility of young media professionals and cross-border cooperation between such professionals and media outlets as a means to promote innovation in the European media sector and foster an environment conducive to quality journalism and media pluralism

* Designing a workable and efficient exchange programme which will require oversight but also a large degree of flexibility, in the light of the specific challenges (budgetary, personnel, linguistic and other) inherent to the media sector;
* Designing the online interface and disseminating all information (possibly in the form of a handbook) about the programme to a wide audience of media outlets and media professionals prior, during and after the termination of the programme;
* Organising the exchange programme: this will include in particular, reviewing of applications, and the selection of the participants and host organisations and subsequent matching of professionals with host organisations based on the selection criteria established;
* Logistical and other support: regular and ad hoc support to professionals and to sending and hosting organisations which shall include providing all information prior to an exchange, answering queries as well as general logistical support, e.g. regarding travel arrangements and finding accommodation;
* Financing of the exchange programme: this will entail disbursement of financial resources to cover travel and subsistence (and possibly related training) costs in the form of grants/other payment mechanisms to media professionals; monitoring of spending and auditing accounts;
* Monitoring and evaluation: with a view to ensuring transparency and accountability as well as to understand the effectiveness, efficiency and impact of the programme, the establishment of processes and tools to evaluate the programme, including by ensuring regular feedback from participants and the design of follow-up templates and other relevant materials needs to be ensured
