Introducing the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking

In November 2021, Council Regulation 2021/2085 established the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU) as a legal and funding entity, one of the European Partnerships to step up the green and digital transition. This Partnership is jointly led by the EC and the 6G Smart Networks and Services Industry Association (6G-IA). The 6G-IA is the voice of European Industry and Research for next-generation networks and services. The 6G-IA brings together a global industry community of telecoms and digital actors, such as operators, manufacturers, research institutes, universities, verticals, SMEs and ICT associations.

The SNS JU enables the pooling of EU and industry resources into Smart Networks and Services. It also fosters alignment with Member States on 6G Research and Innovation and deployment of advanced 5G networks. The SNS JU sets out an ambitious mission with an EU budget of EUR 900 million for 2021-2027. The private sector will contribute at least equal resources (i.e., EUR 900 million) to the SNS JU activities.

The current Work Programme of the SNS JU (2021/22) is available here and this link will be updated as soon as the SNS JU workprogramme 2023/24 becomes available :
