About the IIC

The IIC exists to enable the balanced, open dialogue that shapes the policy agenda

The IIC’s events, meetings and articles coalesce around six global themes addressing trends in innovation and investment, governance, content, competition, privacy and spectrum. These themes are reflected in the event programmes and in Intermedia content.
