has just been launched in the context of the 5G-PPP phase 2 with the major aim of strengthening the links between vertical industries, standardisation and research, as diverse requirements emerge from different vertical industry use cases. will also play a role in supporting consensus building on standardisation and harmonisation on policy and regulations across the EU. This makes it a very timely project as early research results are feeding into the global standardisation process and preparations are underway for the first large-scale trials and demonstrators.

The focus on verticals is perfectly aligned with the recent publication of the 5G-PPP Whitepaper “Empowering vertical industries” which sets key goals for the roll out of the 5G technology in Europe in the next years.
