Emerging 5G Business Models: Opportunities for SMEs and large companies - lessons from 5G PPP

Workshop Overview 
 

The imminent arrival of 5G will bring disruption in business models for incumbent operators and verticals alike. While opportunities will surely arise for large, well-positioned market participants, the real winners may well be those SMEs who have mastered the key technologies and services enabling the new business models emerging from the inevitable disruption not only in the telecommunications ecosystem but also in the vertical sectors making use of 5G including automotive, manufacturing, health, energy, and others.

This interactive workshop will explore the new playing field that is emerging with the advent of 5G, and the opportunities for SMEs to be at the leading edge. Key practical outcomes include ensuring exploitation potential for 5G PPP phase 2 and Phase 3 projects and concrete innovation opportunities for SMEs.
 

Supporting projects include: 5G City, 5G-CORAL, 5G-EVE, 5GENESIS, 5G-MiEDGE, 5G-TRANSFORMER, CARMEN, SAT5G, 5G TANGO.

EC Common Dissemination Booster: The workshop is also co- organised with the EC’s CDB programme, which supports joint dissemination actions between research and innovation actions. The workshop brings on board 5G-TRANSFORMER, 5G PPP phase 2, and 5G-CORAL, a collaborative project between EU and Taiwan
