III Conference on Competition and Regulation in the Telecommunications Market

The impact of 5G on EU competitiveness


Regulators, policymakers and companies are working together towards achieving the European Digital Single Market (DSM) and developing and investing in strategic connectivity objectives, while expecting to foster economic growth, boost jobs, competition, investment and innovation. Is Europe ready?

5G paves the way to the DSM and will enable Europe to achieve its connectivity goals; it will also foster the growth of new business models based on faster, more flexible and more reliable connectivity.

To fulfill all these ambitions, 5G will need higher density networks. That means huge investments and new roll-out challenges; the network densification requires the installation of additional antennas and effective management of planning in order to make the process efficient.

The III Conference on Competition and Regulation in the Telecommunications Market jointly organized by the IESE Business School University of Navarra and CEPS, will tackle the current state of art of 5G deployment and discuss infrastructure and deployment-related challenges.

Registration and coffee from 9.00 – Meeting from 9.30 to 13.00
