Our event was hosted by the Belgian Federal Police, Brussels, Belgium. The event ran from 9:30 for 10:00 prompt start and ended at 15:30.
During the event we covered:
a) A brief reminder of the BroadMap and SpiceNet were given
b) An open discussion took place for each of the 11 objectives of the The BroadWay Ambition:
— Is the objective clear? Is there anything missing?
— Do solutions exist for these objectives?
— Which aspects require innovation?
c) Delegates had the opportunity to ask questions about our scope and the PCP process
The event was organised and chaired by David Lund, Sanja Holen and Marie-Christine Bonnamour from the BroadWay coordination team (PSCE).
An opening address was made by Andrea de Candido, Deputy Head of Unit B4 Innovation and Industry for Security, European Commission.
Participants were invited to join in with the open discussion on the day. Printed copies of our objectives were handed out, giving the means to gather hand written opinions in a confidential manner, if any delegate prefers.
More than 60 suppliers have registered their interest in BroadWay. >40 were in attendance. There was opportunity given to meet and network with other suppliers in order to build teams.
