The 5G IA published the White Paper ‘European Vision for the 6G Network Ecosystem’ edited by the “Vision and Societal Challenges Work Group”. This White Paper is a major milestone at a time when the 5G IA is preparing for the next chapter in the mobile communications story with the new ‘Smart Networks and Services’ (SNS) European Partnership in the framework of the Horizon Europe programme. 5G!Drones partners have also contributed to this paper.

The SNS Partnership will contribute to enable the digital and green transitions and will allow European players to develop the technology capacities for 6G systems as the basis for future digital services. Additional information is available at https://5g-ia.eu/sns-horizon-europe/.
Within the SNS, the 5G IA will be the private side representative, jointly managing the Partnership with the EU.
The White Paper covers key areas related to 6G research from a technical, societal, policy and business perspective providing a vision for the future networks and services.
