The IEEE European Public Policy Committee (EPPC) 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 European Union (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.
The EPPC and its activities brings together tech experts and government officials. Read more on the initiative.
Currently, the IEEE EPPC convenes two working groups, one on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and one on Energy. Both groups are composed of IEEE volunteers from the EU and EFTA countries, 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.
