Invitation to first cross project and organisation stakeholder and expert workshop

The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), together with the French Ministère de l’Economie et des Finances et de la Relance (MEFR), funds bilateral innovation projects on the topic of “Technical developments and application ecosystems for private 5G networks” such as the main project 5G OPERA.

The goal of 5G OPERA is to build a Franco-German ecosystem for private 5G networks under the joint leadership of TU Dresden and EURECOM. The project focuses on the idea of open hardware, software and interfaces so

that multiple providers can participate in the technical equipment of private 5G networks and user needs can be flexibly realized. The overall goal of the project is to ensure that the hardware and software of all project partners can work together technically, independently of the respective manufacturer. In addition to setting up reference test environments and demonstrators in Industry 4.0 environments of both countries, 5G OPERA is supporting the trials in the three demonstration projects.

Key success factor to achieve the project goal of 5G OPERA is an early cross project involvement of stakeholders and experts. Therefore, on behalf of 5G OPERA project team we would like to invite you to the first cross project and organisation stakeholder and expert workshop held on May 13th in Dresden. The aim of the workshop is to disseminate knowledge on technical options, solutions and applications for all invited stakeholder groups. Further it will be also a starting point to initiate new cross-country partnerships, case studies, prototypes, spin-off projects or exploitation of results.
