ISGAN Regulatory Sandbox International Knowledge Exchange Workshop 3

15. April 2021
Online webinar, AT

The objective of the workshop is to facilitate a structured and learning-focused knowledge exchange on sandbox programs and similar measures of regulatory experimenting in different countries.


International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN)

The Sandbox 2.0 workshop series is organized by representatives from four ISGAN annexes: 

  • ISGAN Annex 2 (Case Studies)
  • ISGAN Annex 4 (Policy Insights)
  • ISGAN Annex 7 (Transitions)
  • ISGAN Annex 8 (ISGAN Academy)

Content Description

The aim of ISGAN Regulatory Sandboxes 2.0 is to facilitate learning about what works and what can be improved in the design, implementation, and reflection of regulatory sandboxes.

Learning can take place at multiple levels of policy making (legislative processes, regulatory innovation, research and innovation processes). It also needs to take place at different stages in the implementation, ranging from the advisory and clarification phase, during the experiment phase, and finally ex-post reflections on what worked and what did not work.
