BEREC

Registration for the 5th BEREC Stakeholder forum is now open

01 September 2017

On 18 October in Brussels, BEREC is organising its 5th Stakeholder Forum. This year’s edition will be devoted to many new challenges regulators face in a fast – changing environment.

Investment in very high capacity networks being key in this new environment, the forum will thus be the occasion to further question the way investments and competition could be both incentivized without conflicting under the new access framework proposed by the Commission. The forum will also be dedicated to the question of how regulators can act to protect consumers’ rights as well as to foster innovation in this fast-changing environment.  

The draft BEREC Work Programme for 2018 will be presented during the event. A public consultation on the Work Programme will be launched on that day and all stakeholders will be invited to contribute via BEREC online public consultation tool.

The Forum is fully open to public but is subject to prior registration. The deadline for registration is 3 October 2017. As there are a limited number of seats for the event, registration will be on a first come, first served basis.

Live web streaming, with sign interpretation, will be provided on the BEREC website on the day of the event. Citizens and other interested parties will have an opportunity to watch it in real time and send comments or questions to the speakers through the official BEREC account on Twitter by using #BERECforum.

The BEREC Stakeholder Forum was established in 2013 and aims at providing direct interactive platform for discussion between BEREC and actors of the digital and telecoms sectors. It also aims at debating and developing on strategic issues related to the medium and long term vision and challenges for the electronic communications and digital markets in Europe as well as for consumer protection.
