April 25 All day
On Tuesday 25 April, the 5G for Smart Communities Support Platform, on behalf of the European Commission, would like to invite you to the 5G for Smart Communities launch event.
This event will bring together interested stakeholders from mobile network operators, alternative operators, equipment manufacturers and public authorities, to share ideas and insights on ways to achieve Europe’s Digital Decade targets for 2030, in particular when it comes to the deployment and take up of 5G for smart communities and innovative applications.
The day will feature presentations by DG CNECT and the Commission’s implementing agency HaDEA, with a focus on Europe’s Digital Decade targets for 2030, as well as on how the 5G for Smart Communities action under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) – Digital programme can contribute to the attainment of these objectives. A roundtable discussion will follow, in which we will explore the benefits of collaboration between mobile network operators, alternative operators, equipment manufacturers, and public authorities, and the role of EU-funding in supporting 5G projects.
After a networking lunch, breakout sessions will be organized according to thematic areas of Health, Education, Smart Cities, Emergency and Disaster Relief. Selected 5G for Smart Communities projects from the first CEF Digital call for proposals will present their projects and share useful tips and lessons learned from the application projects with the interested stakeholders. The event will conclude with a wrap-up session and final remarks by DG CNECT.
