The 2nd meeting of the "5G Mobilizer" project was held from the 22nd to 24th May at the facilities of the Creative Science Park. The work was organized in parallel and plenary sessions, with the participation of 60 representatives from 14 national industrial and academic entities, where it was possible to review the first results obtained and to plan the next months.
This meeting was also an opportunity to finalise the preparations for the "5G: from deployment to exploitation" workshop, held on the 25th May at the same site, jointly organized by the 5G Mirror project and platform, also funded by COMPETE 2020. The workshop registered 160 applications, with the participation of 14 external speakers.
The "5G Mobilizer" project has a duration of 36 months, extending until the end of 2020, presenting a perfect alignment with the current schedule of development and production of 5G technology worldwide.
