The path to 6G: Workshop on EU-IN vision for beyond 5G standards (December 8, 2021:Online)

December 8, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:45 pm

TSDSI and ETSI jointly organised a session on day 1 (8th Dec’2021) of IMC 2021 conference from 16:30 to 18:45 IST on the topic of “The path to 6G: Workshop on EU-IN vision for beyond 5G standards”. The session was sponsored by InDiCo.

The objective of the session was to lead to identification of areas of common interest for research and pre-standardization activities in the area of “beyond 5G”, and explore strategies for bringing vertical sectors from both regions on board in the critical phase of use cases and requirements definition, with a view to form a strong basis for the definition of one globally harmonised technical solution meeting these requirements.

The session fostered exchange of views among EU and India experts on Vision and Roadmap, policy initiatives and initiate a discussion on recommended steps for facilitating early alignments for development of globally harmonised standards in the beyond 5G landscape. It featured experts from India and Europe sharing considerations on the above topics, followed by a panel discussion.
