The monitoring instrument draws on the experience of the Euromedia Research Group (EMRG). This is a network of researchers based in EU Higher Education Institutions with over 30 years experience in research and knowledge dissemination on media politics and economics in Europe and beyond, including the operationalisation of the Media for Democracy Monitor (MDM). The EMRG established the research consortium that now operates EurOMo.
