The UK Spectrum Policy Forum is delighted to invite you to our conference "Enabling Spectrum to Deliver a Positive Digital Future". 

This event will launch the final report in the 'UK Spectrum Usage and Demand' series - a report aimed to identify spectrum needs across a breadth of industries and inform future policy debates to avoid a spectrum 'crunch' in the long-term. The event will also explore the contribution of spectrum to UK ambitions on economic growth and societal improvements through DCMS's Expert Panel report on a framework for measuring the socioeconomic value of spectrum.

Having given the inaugural address at the launch of the UK Spectrum Policy Forum, we are delighted to again receive a keynote speech from Ed Vaizey MP, Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy

The UK Spectrum Policy Forum (@UK SPF) is the industry-led sounding board to Government and Ofcom on future spectrum management and regulatory policy with a view to maximising the benefits of spectrum for the UK. The main objective of the Forum is to enable the policy and regulatory environment for maximising access to spectrum through cross-industry leadership and exploring 'over the horizon' issues in spectrum-using applications.

The Forum is open to all organisations with an interest in using spectrum and already has over 150 member organisations. Activities are undertaken by three main 'Cluster' working groups and the Steering Board performs the important function of ensuring the proper prioritisation and resourcing of our work. The UK Spectrum Policy Forum is supported by techUK.
