The Westminster eForum aims to provide the premier environment for policymakers in Parliament, Whitehall and regulatory agencies to engage in timely discussion on public policy relating to technology with key stakeholders. These include representatives of technology businesses, their business and domestic customers, and their advisors; interest groups and the voluntary sector; and academics and commentators, along with members of the reporting press.
In planning its programme of events, the Forum consults parliamentarians, senior departmental officials, regulators, industry representatives and major interest groups.
The Westminster eForum is completely impartial and has no policy agenda of its own. Whilst we are grateful for the support and advice on themes that we receive from sponsors, all editorial decisions remain with the Forum in order to maintain impartiality.
