Europe in Polish
A multilingual press website dedicated to European affairs is now available for readers at www.presseurop.eu. The website contains European press reviews, scans of press cuttings and multimedia.

Presseurop.eu features articles that international and European newspapers and magazines publish on current affairs in the European Union. The articles come from reliable sources and tackle affairs of priority importance to the EU. The news is grouped into six categories: politics, society, economy, culture and ideas, science and the environment, and Europe and the world. Presseurop.eu users can comment on articles, join forums, publish blogs, and vote in online polls.

The website is a joint project by the European Commission and a consortium of magazines led by Courrier International in Paris. Forum weekly magazine represents Poland in the consortium.

The website translates news into 10 languages, English, Czech, French, Spanish, Dutch, German, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, and Italian. The number of language versions will be gradually expanded to 23 to cover all the official languages of the EU. A newsletter will be launched soon.

Presseurop.eu comes in the wake of the European Radio Network (EuRaNet), a joint project by over a dozen radio broadcasters in Europe that deal with EU affairs. In Poland, all public Polish Radio channels are EuRaNet members.

A television network called EU TV Net will be the next European media project, scheduled for launch next year.

Under the deal, Motorola will help Info-TV-FM finance the project.

Changes at Axel Springer Polska
Michał Kobosko, until recently Newsweek Polska editor-in-chief, has replaced Robert Krasowski as Dziennik editor-in-chief. Krasowski resigned from the post. Wojciech Maziarski, Kobosko's deputy at Newsweek Polska is the new editor-in-chief of the weekly. Both publications are from the Axel Springer Polska stable.

"Kobosko will also become editor-in-chief of Gazeta Prawna on condition that the Office for Competition and Consumer protection (UOKiK) approves merging Gazeta Prawna with Dziennik," said Anna Gancarz-Luboń, a spokeswoman for Axel Springer Polska.

The changes in the editorial boards of Dziennik and Newsweek Polska are the result of a contract between Axel Springer Polska and Infor pl. Under the contract, Dziennik is to merge with Gazeta Prawna and a new daily is to emerge from them in autumn.
