Spectrum for 5G

 

With the European Commission action plan on 5G and the RSPG opinion on spectrum related aspects for next-generation wireless systems (5G) both due out in the second half of this year, we are entering a crucial period as stakeholders in the region look to ensure Europe is at the forefront of the development of the 5G vision.

 

This one day interactive forum will look at the drivers behind the spectrum requirements for 5G and at the different frequency ranges that will be required to meet the requirements of various 5G technologies. It will discuss licensing aspects and potential technology enhancements to enable access to new spectrum, and more generally look at what needs to be done in Europe to ensure a spectrum strategy that pushes the region to the forefront of developments in this key area.

Smart Health

 

Throughout Europe, an increasing proportion of GDP is being spent on healthcare, in order to cope with the rising challenges associated with aging populations, chronic diseases (both physical and mental) and public expectation.

This Forum Europe debate, taking place around the EU's mid-term review on the second eHealth Action Plan, will include both digital innovation and horizontal, cross-sector perspectives, with a view to enabling a deeper, less siloed approach to healthcare thinking in Europe.
