The Platform started its activities in September 2009 by analogy with the so-called “North sea Group”. Administrations represented are: Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Switzerland, The Netherlands and UK.
The Platform is covering strategic topics related to the implementation of the Digital Dividend (DD) in the scope of frequency management related issues. Discussing these issues is beneficial for Administrations involved in bilateral negotiations processes.
The objectives are:
o discuss issues from a strategic perspective;
o exchange views on possible solutions for network requirements;
o sharing plans and ideas on possible approaches for identifying (additional and/or alternative) resources;
o discuss alternative solutions/approaches for the DD implementation;
o discuss background for chosen solutions;
o identify overlapping activities and stumbling blocks;
o facilitate the negotiation processes (with the aim to advise negotiation teams on relevant topics);
Summaries of topics discussed will be published (where appropriate, detailed information will be attached in annexes to the summaries). Information on WEDDIP activities can be found in the document area. Where relevant, some documents will be password protected.
