Motivation and Background

The workshop is jointly organised by a group of projects committed to driving vertical industry adoption of 5G by promoting and nurturing research in applications of 5G communications (these projects include: 5G-Xcast (, 5G-MEDIA (, SaT5G (, 5GCity (, IORL (, H2020 Project FLAME (, Clear5G (, 5GCAR (, (, and IRACON ( The workshop brings together experts on 5G to discuss the possible vertical applications of 5G as well as how the envisioned applications are growing with the development of 5G standards. This is also a platform for 5G PPP and other H2020 projects to interact and understand how the different verticals of 5G is shaping up and possibly encourage future collaborations between partners across different projects and sectors. The workshop targets industries spanning Automotive, Media, Energy as a pathfinder for future actions by pursuing the following goals:

  • Discuss progress and priorities with participating projects.
  • Gather requirements emerging from use cases that can feed into the standardisation process.
  • Ensure industry views are represented, also beyond 5g PPP.
  • Engage in a multi-stakeholder dialogue aimed at facilitating contributions to the standards process.

Outputs will feed into relevant WGs within the 5G PPP and the 5G-IA, such as Automotive WG, Trials WG, Pre-standardization, Spectrum. The workshop will also be the basis for a showcase of 5G advances and benefits across the verticals; demonstrating EU leadership, which will be published on the participating project websites for wider promotion. Moreover, as part of the activities to promote research in 5G applications, the cluster of projects has plans for feature topics and special issues in journals and magazines. We plan to invite any outstanding papers submitted to this workshop to publish an extended version of those work in future special issues that we will organize.
