The 30th EBU Technical Assembly has elected a new Technical Committee and Chair at its annual meeting, hosted by Italian broadcaster Rai in Naples this year. The 13 members of the Technical Committee oversee the EBU's work in the tech domain.

Michael Eberhard, CTO of German EBU member organization ARD/SWR, was elected Chair of the Technical Committee, taking over from Michael Nugent (ERT), who led the TC from 2022 to 2024. Brian Wynne from Irish public broadcaster RTÉ and Annsofi Eriksson from Swedish Radio were elected first and second Vice Chairs respectively.

The annual Technical Assembly gathers high-level representatives from all EBU Members for an exchange on technical topics of great strategic importance to public service media. It reviews the Technical Committee’s and the EBU Technology & Innovation department’s ongoing work, endorses the TC's Strategic Roadmap, and elects a new Technical Committee every two years.
