The 2017 EUPRIO conference is being sponsored by easydb.digitalasset made by programmefabrik who will be running a workshop; Die Zeit publishing group which publishes Germany’s leading opinion-forming newspaper; and JobTeaser, the first European recruitment solution for talented young people integrated into universities. 

 Workshop on managing digital assets

easydb_banner_euprio_2017Programmfabrik GmbH will be presenting a special workshop, repeated twice on Friday 30 June, on Digital Asset Management (DAM) led by chief marketing and operations officer, Sebastian Klarmann. He has helped to introduce the company’s easydb as standard software to improve the handling of digital images in PR and marketing at more than 30 universities since 2007.

Sebastian says: “Universities are huge institutions that produce, manage, and reuse thousands of assets like images, audio, video, print material, presentations, and other media data and they have a wide range of users with different IT skills and needs.

“A DAM system reconciles all requirements and competences when dealing with digital assets. It is a professional software for the management of media data and an easy to use tool for finding and sharing information at once.”

Programmfabrik will also raffle an iPad during the conference. For more information about easydb, see
