The Department of Media, Telecommunications and Digital Policy recently launched a call for projects in the frame of the national 5G strategy of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. The call for projects is aimed at triggering innovative projects relying on the 5th generation of mobile communications (5G) or on similar or comparable technologies. Project proposals should respond to one or more of the following characteristics of modern mobile communication:
- Ultra-reliable communications with very low-latency;
- Ultra-high-speed connection with uniform service quality;
- communications between a large number of objects with varying service quality requirements.
Any organization can work on a proposal (companies, administrations, start ups,…). Projects can be submitted by individual organisations or by groups (via a project consortium).
On July 23 2019, the SMC organized an information session about the call. Participation to this session was NOT mandatory for the submission of a project proposal.
