Bridging industry and academia data gap – the human side of it

Telecoms, connected devices, and other technologies processes generate an ever-increasing amount of data and increasingly depend on them. The value of smooth data flow and secure use by various parties is widely recognized.

This workshop, hosted by the Latvian Ministry of Education and Science in collaboration with the Latvian Higher Education and Science IT Shared Service Centre, brings together data holders, researchers, policymakers, and experts.

We’ll delve into non-technical challenges and concerns related to data use in academia, such as building trust between parties, developing procedures and contracts, and fostering understanding to allow flexible yet secure data use for experimental needs.

SNS ICE: 5G for verticals: from large scale trials to adoption, driving economic value in Europe

It takes 10 years for a new mobile technology to become commercially available. Research, standardization, trials for validation, network deployment are needed steps to bring to market a new generation of mobile technology. 5G was not an exception. In Europe, the 5G Public-Private Partnership (5GPPP) incubated 5G, from research to trials. Then industrial players brought it to market making 5G technology the fastest mobile technology for adoption worldwide. Currently, the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS-JU) is playing a similar role in what concerns R&D activities towards the definition of 6G technologies.

This co creation event will share 5GPPP and SNS JU experience in developing mobile technologies. 6G-IA members will share results on trials to validate vertical uses cases, while industrial players will share their experience to bring 5G to real world

A view on the impact of 5G in the real-world economies will complete the session and trigger a panel discussion.
