As many of the UK's 5G Testbeds & Trials projects come towards a conclusion, UK5G and DCMS are celebrating their achievements and outcomes, as well as the great effort and determination by the participants to overcome the considerable challenges thrown up over the last two to three years.
The UK's 5G Showcase Awards will be open for nominations from 20 January 2022 until 22 February 2022 and are open to any consortia, organisation or individual involved in a 5G project in the United Kingdom. Winners will be announced at the Awards Dinner during The UK's 5G Showcase (22-23 March). The Award Categories recognise project consortia and organisations as well as specific individuals who have made an outstanding contribution.
This award is for the project or organisation that can demonstrate the most potentially disruptive business impact through the application of their technology to a use case. The judges will be looking for creative, novel ideas and the development or use of technology which has the opportunity to transform current or future business processes or service provision.
This award recognises the most innovative use of 5G technology from an organisation or project – there is no restriction on the field/arena.
