Welcome at the
BEREC is excited to meet you in person again! On 23 March 2022 in Brussels, we will exchange ideas and engage in discussions at the 10th BEREC Stakeholder Forum. BEREC’s enhanced cooperation with stakeholders will further improve the consistency and harmonised application of regulatory rules in Europe. Just as in 2021, we will start the day with the Meet&Greet sessions, while after lunch, the BEREC Stakeholder Forum will continue the conference. The annual BEREC event will conclude with a networking reception.
Stakeholders are welcome to participate in the event in person. Participation requires prior registration. BEREC will also ensure that stakeholders who cannot travel can follow the conference’s live stream on our website and on social media – Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. In-person and online participants will have an opportunity to send questions to speakers via a designated online tool.
BEREC would like to continue a tradition of organising the Meet&Greet sessions with the BEREC Working Group Co-chairs. The Meet&Greet sessions are planned as informal physical meetings. Registered stakeholders will have an opportunity to exchange ideas with the BEREC Working Group Co-chairs over a coffee to talk about challenges in the sector.
The Meet&Greet sessions will start at 09:30 CET and last until lunchtime. To participate in the Meet & Greet sessions, stakeholders will need to register and identify the group and time slot they would be interested in. Each Working Group will have three 25-minute rounds of meetings with a limited number of places. After a break, a new group of participants will gather to meet the Co-chairs. For more information, please go to the Registration page.
After lunch, BEREC invites all stakeholders to join the conference part of the BEREC Stakeholder Forum. The incoming BEREC Chair for 2023, Konstantinos Masselos (EETT, Greece), will welcome conference participants to introduce the BEREC work plans for 2023 and stakeholder engagement throughout the Work Programme preparatory process. Together with the BEREC Chair, Annemarie Sipkes (ACM, Netherlands), they will engage with participants in discussing the current and future challenges in BEREC’s work. During the conference, moderator Philippe Defraigne (Cullen International) will facilitate lively discussions at panels on Artificial Intelligence’s recent advances and future trends and the regulation of digital platforms for effective enforcement of the Digital Markets Act. The European Commission will present its Digital Decade Policy programme and will be ready to engage with stakeholders during a questions and answers session. BEREC’s study on the effect of Electronic Communications on the environment will also be presented.
