UK5G is the national innovation network dedicated to the promotion of research, collaboration and the industrial application of 5G in the UK. Its mission is to ensure that the UK is at the forefront of global 5G development.
UK5G is a ‘network of networks’ to facilitate and encourage the engagement and coordination of organisations working on 5G activities across the UK. It will enhance links between ongoing research and development activities being undertaken by organisations across telecoms and other sectors, including the UK Government’s 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme.
UK5G is independent and impartial, supported by a senior national advisory board who provide expert feedback from industry, identifying their priorities and advising on future areas of focus.
UK5G will be a focal point for international engagement into the UK’s 5G eco-system – encouraging international participation and investment.
UK5G is bringing together partners from the communications and computing industries who will deliver the underlying technology with a wide range of businesses, universities, government, cities and local administrations to co-invest in a trials and testbeds program to pave the way for commercial deployments.
