RSPG is actively engaged in drafting an Opinion on a Radio Spectrum Policy Programme (RSPP) targeting the 2025/2030 time horizon and covering various sectors using spectrum and supporting European Union policies.
Five main pillars for this new RSPP are under development: strategic spectrum issues, spectrum supporting EU policies, spectrum governance, external relations and other strategic topics such as Climate Change, EMF, pandemic recovery, media policy.
This workshop was an opportunity to collect expectations from stakeholders on issues supporting Union policies and to identify possible concrete strategic actions and policy initiatives to be included in the RSPG Opinion on a Radio Spectrum Policy Programme.
For further details you can consult the agenda and workshop as well as further contributions from the stakeholders.
During the BEREC Plenary Meeting in Ghent on the 13th of June, the RSPG Chair was invited to sign the co-authored Working Arrangement between the two organisations. The Working Arrangement has also been endorsed by the Commission.
“I am very happy that we now have, never mind being non-legally-binding, a paper stating that we like each other, have common interests, stakeholders and goals and that we can cooperate with each other”, says RSPG Chair, Jonas Wessel.
The Working Arrangement means, in short, that BEREC may participate in RSPG Peer Reviews and that each organisation will have a contact point called a Liason Officer responsible for the communication between the organisations.
The BEREC Liason Officer Ms Maja Mitic and the RSPG Liason Officer Mr Bo Andersson.
The RSPG Stakeholder Workshop in Berlin was very successful. The meeting was kindly hosted by Germany and took place at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastucture (BMVI), collecting around 80 engaged participants. The meeting was characterized by openness and curiosity from the stakeholders and a good dialogue between themselves as well as with RSPG Members – for example regarding the new Working Program 2020-2021.
