La Grassroot Radio project is piloting solutions for community information platforms and media pluralism, trabajando para reducir las barreras para comenzar y mantener una estación de radio comunitaria, crear redes regionales y de alcance europeo de estaciones que se pueden juntar las lecciones de nivel comunitario, co-innovar servicios de medios colaborativos y aumentar el impacto de esas estaciones a través de una combinación de tecnologías digitales y no digitales existentes. With partners in Ireland, Romania and Portugal (Madeira), we are experimenting new technologies based on a strong interaction between mobile telephony, traditional radio and Text to Speech (TTS) technologies, a través de la RootIo plataforma.

After the first year of the project, we are currently broadcasting in Bere Islands (Irlanda). In Madeira, the Grassroots Radio team has been doing a lot of activities in Curral das Freiras, a civil parish of about 2000 inhabitants in the centre of Madeira and location of one of our grassroots radio stations. The most important outcome so far, is the licensing process in Romania, that through our partners (Activewatch and Medialert), reached to obtain a community radio licence for the first time in the country. Two radio stations will be launched soon in the Danube delta, Radio Civic Vârvoru de Jos (dolj) y Radio Civic Sfântu Gheorghe (Tulcea).

In this framework, we recently attended the high-level policy workshop The road ahead for digital social innovation: ¿Cómo puede la UE apoyar a la tecnología como una fuerza para el empoderamiento y el impacto social??, which took place in Brussels on April 26, 2019. The workshop was organized by the global innovation foundation Nesta, as part of the digital social innovation (DSI4EU) proyecto. The workshop explored how the European institutions can support Digital Social Innovation (DSI) and create a future where technology empowers citizens to tackle our biggest social and environmental challenges.
