The Body of European regulators for electronic communications (BEREC) acknowledges the importance of the Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) for the Internet and its role as an essential precondition for a digital Europe. Currently, approximately 75% of the European Economic Area (EEA) population does not have access to IPv6 and there exists significant differences between countries with respect to IPv6 deployment.

To help the timely transition to IPv6 and to gather information, BEREC is hosting a virtual public technical workshop with the participation of several key European stakeholders involved in the transition to IPv6.

The main objective of this workshop is to share experiences and best practices on the actions taken to facilitate IPv6 deployment at national level and to debate how different actors can be motivated to deploy IPv6. BEREC hopes that this workshop will provide concrete ideas and tools to facilitate this work at national level. It is also intended to share information and to motivate the actors to take the necessary steps that will ensure the Internet continues to function as an engine of innovation and future growth.
