The International Round Table on Radio Diversity was held 16 November 2009 at KIT Karlsruhe. Nineteen invited participants from nine countries in three continents with extensive industry, academia, media and regulatory experience met for a day-long conference. Round Table participants agreed in advance to address the theme of how to enhance diversity with respect to technical, commercial, regulatory and social benefits in the wireless communications domain. Invited participants included representatives from the European arm of ACCESS Co., Ltd. (Japan's largest mobile browser developer), Intel Europe (a large technology maker), Kleos (a partner of Kyocera), the Soros-supported Open Spectrum Foundation, the US Information Technology & Innovation Foundation and the former chairperson of the Irish Telecommunications Regulator.
The Round Table has been supported as a "start-up" project in the context of the German "Excellence Initiative". It is planned to conduct subsequent events.
