The CLEMI (Centre de Liaison de l’Enseignement et des Médias d’Information - centre for the liaison between teaching and news media) is a media education centre funded by the National Ministry of Education. It was created in 1983 as a department associated with the Centre national de documentation pédagogique (National Centre for Pedagogical documentation). Coordinating a network of 30 local teams, the national CLEMI team consists of 20 persons.
Its expertise relies on its already existing close relationship with the European Media Network, of which it is a founding member; on its knowledge of not only the French but also the European education systems and its capacity to conduct projects incorporating School partner structures (parent associations, educational associations, pedagogical movements); its competencies in training, research projects and production of pedagogical tools concerning media education; and finally, its knowledge of the media produced by young people (in and outside school, curricular and extra-curricular activities) formalised by the Bibliothèque nationale de France (National French Library) as part of an associated pole convention.
