Europe's 5G PPP Initiative has launched a third phase of R&D projects at the EuCNC conference in Ljubljana. As part of the EU's Horizon 2020 research funding, the European Commission is providing EUR 50 million for the projects starting from July, an amount that will be matched several times by industry participants.

Phase 1 performed fundamental research for the fifth generation of network communications, while Phase 2 used those technologies for the digitisation and integration of vertical industries in Europe. Phase 3 will address the development and roll-out of a 5G platform across Europe.

The three new 5G PPP projects were selected on merit from 16 proposals received and are planned to run for three years. The project 5G EVE aims to create the foundations for the roll-out of end-to-end 5G networks in Europe and will allow vertical industries to validate their network KPIs and services. 5G-VINNI aims to accelerate the uptake of 5G by providing an end-to-end facility that validates the performance of new 5G technologies by operating trials of advanced vertical sector services. 5GENESIS will work to validate and unify the various 5G network KPIs and technologies, focusing on the integration of the diverse results from EU, global as well as corporate R&D projects in a full-stack, end-to-end 5G platform.
