„Frequencies for a creative & inclusive Europe“ (Wider Spectrum Group)

European growth, innovation, inclusiveness and sustainable employment in the fields of audiovisual, radio, live performances, programme-making and special events depend on the access to radio spectrum frequencies, and more specifically to the 470-694 MHz band.

Rules concerning spectrum use are shaped internationally, through ITU’s World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC), and will be discussed next year at the WRC-23. In this framework, the EU needs to form its position for WRC-23, including on the future use of the 470-694 MHz band, which will be defended by the EU Member States during the Conference.

With this event, the Wider Spectrum Group aims to create a platform for discussion about the EU’s objectives for WRC-23, industry’s suggestions for the content of the EU position for WRC-23 and the impact of the decisions taken by WRC-23 on the EU audiovisual, radio, live performance and content creation sectors – and ultimately on EU citizens.
