European Internet Services Providers Association (EuroISPA) Officer Innocenzo Genna has been elected as a new member of the European Internet Forum (EIF) Board of Management. In his new capacity, Mr Genna will help the European political leadership to develop policy that is responsive to the challenges of the worldwide digital transformation.
Mr Genna brings to the EIF board a depth of experience of working within the EU policymaking sphere. He is an expert of European regulation and policies in the areas of Internet, telecommunications and ICT. Having played a leading role in EuroISPA for over a decade, he has worked with various actors in the digital sphere to help create a legislative environment that encourages innovation and secures the fundamental open characteristics of the Internet.
The EIF is at the crossroads of policymaking, industry, and civil society, and as such serves as a crucial space where insightful discussions on digital policy can take place. Mr Genna’s EuroISPA experience is an asset in this regard, as through its transversal membership of 2300 firms along the Internet value chain, the association occupies a pivotal position in the European digital landscape.
EuroISPA Officer Innocenzo Genna said: “The next three years promise to be eventful ones for the Internet sector. At this time the work of the EIF is more important than ever, and it is essential that the Forum’s Board facilitates insightful discussions that can feed into policymaking. Alongside my fellow Board members, I aim to optimise the Forum’s impact as Europe continues this digital transformation”
