A better understanding of mapping is essential for the Broadband Competence Offices (BCO) Network members as it relates directly to State Aid decisions, notably in grey areas. The objective of the thematic group is to bring a better understanding on which areas and population groups are under-serviced, and explore ways that aid intervention can be planned for such target areas. The agenda and registration for this thematic group for the Broadband Competence Offices will be made available to all members of the European Broadband Competence Offices (BCOs) Network later in 2018.
This is the fourth thematic group organised by the BCO Network Support Facility in partnership with DGs CNECT, AGRI, REGIO and COMP.
These thematic groups are part of a capacity-building knowledge-exchange programme run by the BCO Network Support Facility in order to connect and strengthen the BCO Network, support broadband roll-out in urban, rural and remote regions, and contribute to achieving the EU Digital Single Market and Gigabit Society objectives.
