Working Groups

LEPs & SMEs

If the adoption of 5G technologies by UK industry is to be accelerated, then a key of focus has to be uptake from small and medium size enterprises (SMEs). These businesses make up approximately 99% of all businesses, and 52% of UK business turnover.

UK5G has established a new Working Group which will work to engage SMEs in conjunction with Local Enterprise Partners (LEPs) in England and equivalent bodies in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The Working Group will advise on the development a viable and achievable plan for encouraging SME and other business adoption of 5G technologies. This advice may take the form of strategic thinking integrated with LEP’s own economic strategies which may contribute towards a stand-alone, UK-wide policy report in the future.

The application process for this Working Group has closed and participants will be announced shortly.
