Date: 
22/01/2019 - 09:00 to 12:30
Venue: 
The University Foundation, Rue d'Egmont 11, 1000 Brussels

Following the agreement on the new European Electronic Communications Code, this CERRE seminar will provide an opportunity to analyse the outcomes of the negotiation and discuss how to interpret and implement the Code’s provisions in the light of those ambitions.

Will it really stimulate investment in very high capacity networks while promoting competition and protecting consumers? 

Join major actors from the sector, including industry experts, regulatory authorities, academics and representatives from the European institutions to discuss the new EECC.
