FSR C&M/FCP Joint Online Course on 5G: Understanding Main Policy Challenges

5 WEEK ONLINE COURSE

The course is organised by The Florence School of Regulation, Communications and Media (FSR C&M) and by the Florence Competition Programme (FCP), two programmes based at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) of the European University Institute (EUI). These programmes provide state-of-the-art training for practitioners, carry out analytical and empirical research, and promote informed discussions on key policy issues in regulation and competition. Their flagship activity is the Joint Annual Training “Competition & Regulation for the Digital Era”. 

In this first block of this year’s training edition, this course will provide expert insight into the most recent policy challenges raised by 5G, beginning with an analysis of the main differences associated with spectrum assignment from 1G networks in the early 80s until the contemporary era, taking into consideration the importance of an adequate auction design to unleash the potential of 5G on industries, economic development, and people’s lives. Further, the course will provide an overview of the technologies and the amount of investment needed to deploy the telecommunication systems’ new generation, while identifying the type of regulatory tools capable of encouraging the whole process. Subsequent weeks will cover topics like security vulnerabilities affecting wireless networks, privacy concerns and solutions. Finally, the most recent developments in the antitrust landscape will be given particular attention, with relevance to the emerging SEPs markets, encompassing the novel licensing challenges for parties involved in both standardisation and the licensing process, as determined by the development of wider and deeper interconnectivity, better known as the Internet of Things (IoT). The course will be complemented by a series of case studies regarding potential ways of implementing 5G across different industrial sectors.
 
The online course will provide a platform where participants can meet and learn from academics, outstanding in their field. The training will take a multidisciplinary approach, allowing everyone to gain a combination of theoretical and practical skills whilst promoting creative thinking.
 
Each module will consist of dedicated reading materials, self-evaluation assessments, discussions, and an interactive live class to wrap-up the week. Recordings will be available shortly after each live class. Throughout the duration of the course, participants will be able to interact with each other and the instructors as well. At the end of the course, individual feedback will be provided to those participants who deliver the final assignment, i.e. short essay on a choice of topics related to the weekly modules, which represents a requirement for obtaining the Level 2 Certificate
