Welcome to the UK5G newsletter, your regular source of information for 5G events and news from the 5GTT programme.
An update from the UK5G team...
Just NINE days remain to submit your application to the Rural Connected Communities Competition. The deadline is noon 25th October so be sure to review the collaboration exchange which spotlights businesses seeking consortia partners - do take a look if you are interested in applying for the £30 million fund.
27th September marked the Clarification Questions Receipt Deadline and the DCMS received a rush of queries. These have been collated (quite a big update) and you can view the 28-page Q&A document here.
There are a fair few clarifications relating to State Aid and match funding rules for various organisations, which potential bidders may find useful.
If you need to be refreshed of the eligibility and criteria, you can view the competition briefing film and slides here.
