Coordination and Support Actions

The project portfolio includes two (2) Coordination and Support Actions (SNS OPS & SNS ICE) focussed on internal operational aspects of the SNS Partnership as well as on establishing dialogues with EU initiatives (e.g., related partnerships, national initiatives, etc.) and promote SNS results and achievements at a global level while working towards the formation of global standards.

Project Abstract

Supporting the operations of the 6G Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking.

The SNS OPS project is devoted to supporting the SNS JU Operations. The planned work is to facilitate the activities of the European SNS Initiative, as outlined in the SNS contractual partnership.

This includes:

  • Support for the Smart Networks Services (SNS) institutionalised European partnership and the related programmatic organisation through cross SNS projects coordination.
  • Organisation of the SNS as a coherent programme with clear links to the 6G Infrastructure Association and the EC via the partnership board and the JU Office and their strategic policies.
  • Maximised output and exploitation of SNS project results in key domains (e.g., standardisation, spectrum) through managed cooperation between projects on horizontal issues.
  • Inter JU coordination and joint actions.

The SNS OPS project will also orchestrate and organise strategic activities to capture and promote the European view on 6G, the achievements of the 6G SNS and will start the process of monitoring the development and impact of these results on the evolution of 6G in Europe over the period of life of the 6G SNS initiative.

This work will also look to the future and consider what additional actions are necessary to maintain the European momentum and leadership in 6G and facilitate the uptake of 6G by the European vertical sectors.

During the life of the SNS OPS project, the SNS JU will be launching and expanding its first phase activities and preparing for subsequent phases.

Project Abstract

The project will create a collaborative environment for European and global stakeholders involved in the preparation of 6G smart networks and services. It will be the instrument to present, leverage, and position the SNS JU activities and achievements in major European and global fora. The project will work at a global level with other regions, where 6G activities are planned and ongoing. This will create an environment to promote SNS JU results and achievements, and exchange trends and ideas to achieve global consensus. Key standardization activities will be also monitored, and main roadmaps and trends will be communicated back to the SNS JU projects.

The project will also establish dialogues at a European level between peer Horizon Europe Partnerships, national initiatives, research and development clusters, etc., targeting the exchange of information, plans and priorities. This will enable a better understanding of the European activities among the involved stakeholders and will potentially enable a better alignment of their plans.

Additionally, SNS ICE will also be engaged in dialogues with key vertical industries through well-established associations, to identify their requirements and promote the SNS JU solutions to them. This exchange of ideas will create opportunities for tailor-cut 6G solutions and their early adoption by the vertical industries.

All these activities are expected to contribute significantly to securing Europe’s leading role in the definition, provision, and exploitation of 6G solutions.

SNS ICE is planning to organize dedicated workshops with the abovementioned groups of stakeholders at main international events, most notably Techritory and EuCNC. It will also provide several presentations at international and European conferences and events. The outcomes of these results will be communicated to the SNS JU community assisting the research and innovation activities to be fully aware of the global 6G progress.
