About the 5G-PPP

The 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership, in short 5G PPP, has been initiated by the EU Commission and industry manufacturers, telecommunications operators, service providers, SMEs and researchers.

In the 5G PPP, the 5G Infrastructure Association (5G IA) represents the private side and the European Commission the public side. The 5G IA is committed to the advancement of 5G in Europe and to build global consensus on 5G.

The Association and its Members carry out a wide-range of activities in key strategic areas including standardisation, frequency spectrum, R&D, cooperation with other strategic industry sectors. The Association has two categories of membership: Members and Associate Members.

The 5G Infrastructure Association launched an activity in 2016 to generate a strategy for developing a Pan-European 5G Trials Roadmap, and then to prepare the comprehensive Trials Roadmap.

To generate these documents and roadmaps, the 5G Infrastructure Association initiated and coordinates a 5G Trials Working Group expanding the work initiated by the Industry and EC in the context of respectively the 5G Manifesto of industry in Europe and the 5G Action Plan of the EU Commission.
