First year for our Public Policy Blog!

This month, we celebrate our 1rst Public Policy Blog Anniversary! It is a pleasure to have shared these last twelve month with all of you and to celebrate today our one year milestone.


ICT world policy is currently crossing an interesting moment with all the challenges to build a successful and Sustainable future that puts Innovation in a relevant place and also Internet, as it is now key for our lives. Broadband and Internet policies are highly discussed in different policy and regulatory fora, without forgetting all the questions raised by the appearance of new business models and new services & products, which has a clear influence on how to tackle Privacy policies too.
