UNIB organizes the webinar: “Next Generation and Telecommunications Policy”

March 19, 2024

The Universidad Internacional Iberoamericana de Puerto Rico (International Iberoamerican University, UNIB) will organize, on March 26 at 4:00 p.m. (CET), the webinar: “Next Generation and Telecommunications Policy.”

The session will be taught by Miguel López Coronado and Ignacio Aizpún 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).

The Digital Single Market (DSM) and the telecommunications industry are currently the most important drivers of global competition, growth, and economic innovation. The market is currently estimated to be worth 400 billion euros annually. However, the Digital Single Market and the telecommunications industries sector are also facing difficulties in Europe. In 2000, the European Union accounted for one third of the world's telecommunications investment. Today, due to mismanagement by the community regulator, the EU has reduced its investment to one-fifth of the world total.

The event is held in collaboration with the Iberoamerican University Foundation (FUNIBER), 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:
