BEREC events 2022

BEREC Stakeholder Forum

Event date:

Event location: Belgium, Brussels

On 23 March 2022 in Brussels, BEREC held its annual Stakeholder Forum to exchange ideas and engage in discussions with its stakeholders. BEREC’s enhanced cooperation with stakeholders will further improve the consistency and harmonised application of regulatory rules in Europe. Just as in 2021, we started the day with the Meet&Greet sessions, while after lunch, the BEREC Stakeholder Forum continued with the conference. The annual BEREC event concluded with a networking reception.

BEREC continued a tradition of organising the Meet&Greet sessions with the BEREC Working Group Co-chairs. The Meet&Greet sessions were planned as informal physical meetings. Registered stakeholders had an opportunity to exchange ideas with the BEREC Working Group Co-chairs over a coffee to talk about challenges in the sector.

The incoming BEREC Chair for 2023, Konstantinos Masselos (EETT, Greece), welcomed conference participants and introduced with 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 engaged with participants in discussing the current and future challenges in BEREC’s work.

During the conference, moderator Philippe Defraigne (Cullen International) facilitated 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 presented its Digital Decade Policy programme and engaged with stakeholders during a questions and answers session. BEREC’s study on the effect of Electronic Communications on the environment was also presented.
