Within the scope of the EU radio spectrum policy and by initiative of the Commission, a seminar on “Research & Technology Development and Spectrum Policy” is scheduled for 23 November, aiming to identify the possible connections between technological research and the different aspects of the radio spectrum regulation.
Later, on 1 December, in Brussels, there will be a seminar organised by the DG Information Society of the European Commission, to disclose the conclusions of the study on “Information on allocation, availability and use of radio spectrum in the community”. This study, developed by a consortium formed by three entities (Idate, Aegis and Bird&Bird), aims to gather and structure the current information on the matter, as well as to put forward recommendations on the measures to be adopted for future actions to be pursued by the Commission.
As to the “Study on conditions and options in introducing secondary trading of radio spectrum in the European Community”, presented in a seminar held last 15 July, the comments received by the Commission are already available.
Meanwhile the managing board of the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) was appointed, as follows: the Finish Kristiina Pietikainen (President), the Hungarian Ferenc Suba (Vice-President) and the Italian Andrea Pirotti (Executive Director). The Agency’ rules of procedures were also approved on 15 September and the recruitment process of the remaining technical members is taking place now, which will be finished next year.
