The Commission has launched a call for tenders for the study on spectrum assignment in the EU.

The objective of the study is to support the policy making through a further assessment (additional to preceding studies contracted by the Commission services or available from other sources) of the specific elements, processes and conditions under which radio spectrum for wireless broadband, and in particular for 5G usage, should be authorised and assigned by Member States and – having regard also to the Commission's forthcoming revision proposals - how spectrum access can contribute more fully to the general objectives set out by the EU regulatory framework.
