Webinar: “Telecommunications Policy in the European Digital Agenda”

Webinar: “Telecommunications Policy in the European Digital Agenda”

The Iberoamerican University Foundation (FUNIBER) will organize, on February 20 at 4:00 p.m. (CET), the webinar: “Telecommunications Policy in the European Digital Agenda.”

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).

Over the last decades, convergence has blurred the differences between telecommunications, broadcasting, and information technology. The European Commission proposed in 2015 the Digital Single Market to give effect to major legislative proposals, such as increased e-commerce, copyright, e-privacy, and harmonization, as much as digital rights, VAT rules, and cybersecurity.

A Digital Single Market would enable consumers and businesses to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by the Internet and digital technologies.

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. Streaming schedules can be consulted at this link. Registration is required to participate:
