5G-PPP projects converge at NetWorld2020, 19 April 2016

Tuesday, 19 April, 2016

Many of the activities of the European Technology Platform, NetWorld2020, in the recent years have been towards supporting and proposing research directions of ICT topics in Horizon 2020 and in particular of the 5G PPP, e.g. preparing a Strategic Research Agenda and several Whitepapers.

The NetWorld2020 event on 19 April 2016 will report on these activities, as well as future plans and the drivers behind them. The event will also be a good place for meeting and networking with a strong participation from the NetWorld2020 membership expected.
