Revealing the Digital Dividend roadmap10 November 2009
BELGIUM: A one-day ‘interactive policy forum’ on the Digital Dividend will take place on November 30 in Brussels, writes David Davies. ‘Implementing a European Dividend Strategy’ will be held at The Crowne Plaza Brussels City Center (Le Palace) and is set to provide an opportunity to find out more about the forthcoming Digital Dividend from EC representatives and other leading decision-makers.
Confirmed speakers at the session include Mike Byrne (pictured; commissioner, Commission for Communications Regulation and rapporteur of the working group on Digital Dividend, RSPG), Pearse O’Donohue (head of radio spectrum policy unit, European Commission), Matthew Conway (director of operations, spectrum policy group, Ofcom), Nicola Frank (head of Brussels office, EBU) and Malcolm Taylor (MD, Cable Europe Labs).
Specific sessions will include an interactive discussion on ‘making the right decision in frequency allocation’, and an examination of the extent to which national differences need to be recognised during the development of a harmonised and co-ordinated approach.
Dan Craft, director of event organiser Forum Europe, tells PSN-e: "Taking place so soon after the publication of the Commission’s Digital Dividend roadmap, this event offers delegates the opportunity to hear from those people directly involved in its formulation and discuss the proposals put forward in more detail. It will offer a platform for a frank and interactive debate on the best way forward in implementing a European Digital Dividend strategy to ensure that maximum socio-economic benefits are achieved."
Online registration is available now at the Digital Dividend website (link below). The registration fee is 240 euros per delegate; alternatively, it is possible to register two delegates and get a third place free.
