SNS: A European collaborative initiative with a strong vertical impact on a global level

Thursday, 8 June 2023, 11:00-12:30, Room Congress Hall
Session Chair:
  • Alexandros Kaloxylos (6G Smart Networks and Services Industry Association (6G-IA))

The success of the Smart Networks and Services JU relies not only on the technical results of the projects but also on acceptance and adoption of these results at European and global level. The journey for the creation of 6G networks requires the establishment of a collaboration environment at European and global level. In this environment, stakeholders will be able to exchange information and fine-tune their activities to maximize their results. The SNS-ICE CSA project has the mandate to establish these communication links and establish dialogues among the key stakeholders on a global level. The purpose of this convened session is to present to the community the SNS strategy behind this collaboration framework and kick off the discussion among a) activities taking place mainly at European level (i.e., national initiatives and related HEU Partnerships) and b) Vertical users.
