On the 26th and 27th of January 2021, the new 5G Research and Innovation project 5GMediaHUB “5G experimentation environment for 3rd party media services” held a successful online kick-off meeting with the participation of 17 partners and the coordination of CENTRE TECNOLOGIC DE TELECOMUNICACIONS DE CATALUNYA (CTTC).
5GMediaHUB is part of 5G PPP Phase 3 and will last for 3 years. It aims to help EU to achieve the goal of becoming a world leader in 5G, by accelerating the testing and validation of innovative 5G-empowered media applications and NetApps from 3rd party experimenters and NetApps developers, through an open, integrated and fully featured Experimentation Facility. This will significantly reduce not only the service creation lifecycle but also the time to market barrier, thus providing such actors that are primarily from SMEs, with a competitive advantage against their rivals outside EU.
During the meeting all 17 partners of the consortium introduced their organisations and the discussion was mainly focused on the role of each partner in the project and the work that needs to be performed under each Work Package. Moreover, the main goal was to establish a common vision for the project and lay out the project management framework.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 101016714.
