The Observatory was created in order to collect and distribute information about the audiovisual industries in Europe. By making this information available, the Observatory aims at promoting greater transparency and a clearer understanding of the ways in which the audiovisual industries in Europe function, both from an economic and legal point of view.

The Observatory provides information on the various audiovisual markets in Europe and their financing. It also analyses and reports on the legal issues affecting the different sectors of the audiovisual industry.

The Observatories’ website accommodates several databases such as IRIS Merlin, a database on legal information relevant to the audiovisual sector in Europe, and KORDA, a database on public funding for film and audiovisual works in Europe.
