The Vice-President of the EU Commission Ms. Neelie Kroes invited industry at the Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona on 26 February 2013 to join a new Public Private Partnership (PPP) on
“Horizon 2020 Advanced 5G Network Infrastructure for Future Internet PPP”
A group of industry companies started to prepare a first draft of a PPP proposal which is following a template provided by the EU Commission. A draft version of the technical part of the proposal is now available. It addresses
An important part of the overall evaluation process of PPP proposals is a public consultation with a wider community on the intended technical content of the proposal.
This PPP should have its roots in the Net!Works European Technology Platform and is therefore published here on the Net!Works web.
The EU Commission informed us in Net!Works that the formal submission of the PPP proposal has to happen by May 30, 2013. Therefore, the consultation will be open until May 27, 2013 in order to take into account all received comments before submission. Comments are invited until this deadline and should be sent to consultations(at)networks-etp.eu. Comments-processing will be organised by the Chairman of the Net!Works Expert Group, Prof Rahim Tafazolli, University of Surrey. Based on the comments a revised version of the proposal will be prepared. We are looking forward to your feedback.
