Roundtable 6: Competition and European Interaction

This event is a roundtable discussion on topics covered within the Open Standards: Open Opportunities public consultation.

This event replaces the roundtable 1, which covered the same topic. Output from roundtable 1 will not be considered as part of the evidence for the consultation - see the GDS blog for further details.

Note that this event will be recorded and may be made publicly available.

Running order

1.45pm -  Registration

2pm - Roundtable begins

  1) Introduction to the Open Standards: Open Opportunities Consultation

  2) Discussion on the following questions raised in the consultation:

  • Are there any legal or procurement barriers to mandating specific open standards in the UK Government's IT?
  • Is the proposed UK policy compatible with European policies, directives and regulations (existing or planned) such as the European Interoperability Framework version 2.0 and the reform proposal for European Standardisation?
  • Will the open standards policy be beneficial or detrimental for innovation and competition in the UK and Europe?
  3) Summing up of the discussion

  4) Engaging on open standards in the future

4.30pm - close 

  • Stimulate a transparent debate
  • Encourage considered responses to the online public consultation
  • Build an ongoing dialogue relating to standards in government IT
The results from the public consultation will inform the open standards policy for government IT, to be published later in the year.

The event will take place at a central London location. Details will be provided to face-to-face booking  attendees, once confirmed.

A telephone conference facility will also be provided. Dial-in details will be available to those booking telephone attendee tickets.
