The IEEE European Public Policy Initiative (EPPI) was created in 2013. The Initiative aims at expanding the dialogue between the European engineering community and European public authorities to enable technologists to more easily share their expertise and concerns and to enable the EU institutions and other policy stakeholders to more easily obtain technologists’ input in matters relating to IEEE’s fields of interest. For more information on IEEE fields of interest, please consult the IEEE entry in the European Transparency Register.
Currently, the IEEE EPPI convenes two working groups, one on ICT and one on Energy. Both groups are composed of IEEE volunteers with expertise in these technical fields. The groups meet virtually every month and convene in person several times a year. The primary task of the working groups is to engage on topics on the EU policy agenda where it can provide value by sharing a technologist perspective through papers, meetings, or other channels.
The IEEE European Public Policy Initiative brings together tech experts and government officials. Read more on the initiative.
