UK5G are supporting Innovation IntrodUKtions - a virtual trade mission introducing 20 x UK companies to the telecom innovation ecosystem - 15th and 16th July

A focus for the UK5G International Working Group is to explore opportunities to create and expand the footprints of 5G-related UK businesses overseas as well as helping to encourage appropriate inward investment into the UK.

A new opportunity has been facilitated by the WG joint chair, Dr Mike Short (Department of International Trade’s Chief Scientific Adviser) along with his colleagues based at the British Consulate in San Francisco. They have worked with Telecom Council of Silicon Valley over the last few years, introducing UK companies to the telecoms community.

You are invited to remotely attend this event free of charge.

Over two days rapid-fire pitches will highlight 20 x selected UK companies solving technology and business challenges across all aspects of the communications and IoT ecosystems, including 5G.

The agenda also includes “fireside chats” with:

  • Ros Singleton, Chair of the UK5G Advisory Board
  • Mohammad Lari, Head of Cross-Government and International Coordination 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme , DCMS
  • Julie Snell, Chair, The Scotland 5G Centre
  • Michel Sabatier, Business Development Director, WM5G
  • Additional speakers TBC

Bob Driver, Head of UK5G, comments: “We reached out to a number of the most innovative UK companies we know, either directly or through our extensive network of partners. The response has been fantastic, and we think the UK offer will be an impressive one. There are substantial changes taking place in telecommunication markets both in the US and globally, and this means there are significant opportunities for firms with unique offers.”
