5G Users Forum: Empowering EU Healthcare

As the coronavirus crisis continues to challenge Europe, many have turned to technology as a way to better cope with the emergency and with a view of building the recovery. At such a crucial moment, we invited participants to join us for a dialogue on what 5G technology can do for healthcare organisations across Europe. We discussed current 5G use cases and trials in the healthcare sector, learned more on the needs of European healthcare organisations and exchanged with key policymakers in the field.

During the webinar, we promoted an open and frank exchange among speakers and participants with 1 key objective: to allow healthcare representatives to learn more about 5G and telecoms experts to learn more about the needs of Europe’s healthcare ecosystem.
