EU Spectrum Policy

Dinner Debate


The upcoming World Radio Communications conference in November 2015 organised by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) will see important decisions being taken on spectrum allocations.

Decisions adopted at this conference will have a direct impact on how we can meet future connectivity needs in Europe and around the world. It is therefore necessary for the EU to work together to ensure that our interests are promoted during these negotiations. The EIF event aims to foster a balanced debate between the main sectors that may be impacted by these decisions (satellite, broadcast and mobile). To meet the real needs of European consumers, all decision-makers must critically assess demands for additional spectrum, and this event will discuss the key issues of spectrum policy to be debated and the impact of the WRC for the EU.
