Workshops are organised by the policy departments and enable members to put questions to and exchange views with experts on subjects associated with parliamentary business or subjects of current interest. They are not necessarily held in public but may be held during a committee meeting.

The aim of the workshop was to give Members the chance to explore in detail the impacts of Brexit on the EU27 ICT policies. Four high level speakers gave a general overview of the potential impacts of Brexit; considered the implications for digital innovation; examined the implications for policymaking and regulation; and discussed the implications on innovation and deployment of 5G. Their presentations were followed by a question and answer session with Members.

The workshop is organised by Policy Department for Economic, Scientific and Quality of Life Policies at the request of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE).

The workshop was held on 19 June 2018 from 15.30 - 17.00.

Please note that no special registration is available for the workshop. While the workshop is in principle open to the public, you need to have access to the European Parliament to be able to attend. Alternatively you can follow the workshop via webstreaming.
