Open Letter to the Council
Brussels, 25 June 2019 – As the Council of the European Union prepares to decide on the Delegated Regulation on Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), we call upon Member States to formally object to the current version of the Delegated Act. The proposed Regulation fails to ensure technology-neutrality, ignoring that newer technologies have emerged in recent years, offering unique capabilities to accelerate the market penetration of C-ITS and to deliver enhanced safety in a global ecosystem. Moreover, the significant concerns raised by the Council Legal Service on the lawfulness of certain provisions of the Regulation cannot be ignored.

Brussels, 24 May 2019 – The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) turns 1 year old and European telcos can look back with satisfaction at months of hard work on the implementation. Whilst GDPR has been seen as projecting European leadership on privacy globally, concerns about restricting innovation remain high, not least because of potential competing rules in the proposed ePrivacy Regulation.

Europe’s industrial sectors are in the midst of digital transformation. This comes with huge opportunities for socio-economic growth, but also with the necessity to build trust across sectors of society and to scale-up sustainability efforts. Also, the need for Europe to aim for a global leadership position in tech has never been so high.
