On 16 March, 2020, Digital Catapult will host the INITIATE workshop, providing technology companies and startups with a unique opportunity to meet academic partners and explore how future internet technologies can enable the development of new products and services.
The workshop will focus on how startups and larger technology companies can collaborate with the specialist INITIATE distributed testbed to facilitate the increasingly large and complex experimentation required for future networks research.
Workshop attendees will learn how to take advantage of some of the most advanced connected technologies and use the testbed to facilitate product research and development.
As an open workshop attendees will be able to discuss their unique requirements and help shape further development of the distributed testbed. The workshop will allow engagement with experts in 5G and future networks research from partnering universities creating collaborative relationships for testing and research and shared learnings between industry and academia.
The event will also feature demonstrative proof of concepts (PoC) already built on the testbed
