More: The standardisation of 5G and the advancement towards 6G technologies pose considerable challenges, particularly in meeting the diverse requirements of industry verticals ranging from automotive to public safety. Ensuring these technologies and their services align with end-user needs requires a meticulous standardisation process, accounting for the capabilities and performance characteristics vital for different applications. This necessity highlights the importance of collaboration between industry experts and standardisation communities to produce globally recognised standards that facilitate interoperability and enable the full potential of 5G and 6G applications.

The evolution towards 5G Advanced in the shift from 5G to 6G propelled by the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU) emphasises the strategic role of European contributions in shaping the global standardisation ecosystem, a critical factor for maintaining competitive advantage in telecommunication systems and services. The evolution towards 6G is posed to significantly influence business sectors and societal functions, emphasising the need for multi-stakeholder collaboration. In the SNS context, the 6G-IA pre-standardisation working group aims to align with key standardisation bodies to ensure European stakeholders continue to be influential in the rapidly developing landscape of mobile communications.

This online workshop series, organised by SNS OPS as part of its Impact Assessment and Facilitation Action (IAFA) initiative in collaboration with ETSI and HSbooster.eu, will tackle relevant topics linked to challenges in standardisation in the context of 5G/6G developments. The events will feature the participation of experts sponsored through HSbooster.eu premium service programme and will tackle topics such as SDOs’ future 6G Agendas, SDOs 6G Work Items, verticals and standardisation, including the advancements and support of services enabled by 5G and 6G.
