UK5G is the new national innovation network dedicated to the promotion of research, collaboration and the commercial application of 5G in the UK.
UK5G is a ‘network of networks’ to facilitate and encourage the engagement and coordination of organisations working on 5G activities across the UK. It will enhance links between ongoing research and development and other activities being undertaken by organisations across telecoms and other sectors, as well as the testbeds and trials that will be funded through the UK Government’s 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme. It will facilitate the joining up of businesses, large and small, academic institutions and the public sector throughout the UK.
UK5G is independent and impartial. A senior national advisory board will advise the Government's 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme, providing expert feedback from industry, identifying their priorities and advising on future areas of focus.
UK5G will be a focal point for international engagement into the UK’s 5G eco-system - encouraging international participation and investment.
