Webinar: “Broadband Policy. Ecosystem of the Digital Sector”

The Iberoamerican University Foundation (FUNIBER) will organize, on February 6 at 4:00 p.m. (CET), the webinar: “Broadband Policy. Ecosystem of the Digital Sector”

The session will be taught by Miguel López Coronado and Jorge Pérez and is integrated in the Jean Monnet Chair “Telecommunications Policy in the EU and the Information Society” offered by the Universidad Europea del Atlántico (European University of the Atlantic, UNEATLANTICO).

Broadband is the term commonly used to refer to faster Internet speeds and other technical features that enable access to or delivery of new content, applications, and services. Due to the growing importance of digital data, good Internet connections are essential not only for European businesses to remain competitive in the global economy but also to foster social inclusion, more generally. Therefore, this topic will introduce the digital sector with the ecosystem it produces in the global economy and society.

The event is held in collaboration with the Universidad Internacional Iberoamericana de Puerto Rico (International Iberoamerican University, UNIB), the Universidad Internacional Iberoamericana de México (International Iberoamerican University of Mexico, UNINI Mexico), the Fundación Universitaria Internacional de Colombia (International University Foundation of Colombia, UNINCOL), the Universidade Internacional do Cuanza (International University of Cuanza, UNIC), and the Universidad de La Romana (University of La Romana, UNIROMANA).

The conference is free-of-charge and open to anyone interested in the topic. It will be broadcast live in each country where FUNIBER is present. Broadcast schedules are available at this link. Registration is required to participate:
