Breakfast debate: Europe’s New Digital Policies: where should the focus be?

A #ThinkDigital debate co-hosted by MEP Gunnar Hökmark and ETNO

During the breakfast debate we will discuss upcoming digital policies under the new European Commission, with a particular regard to the European Parliament viewpoint on the way ahead for digital.

The discussion will tackle the key question of which topics should be prioritised by the EU in the near future, with the aim of achieving a more innovative and more investment-conducive climate to boost the deployment of Europe’s digital infrastructures.

Among other things, speakers and discussants will debate on issues such as spectrum policies, as well as the overhaul of the current regulatory framework for telecoms.
