5G Users Forum: Empowering EU Smart Manufacturing

Following the first webinar of dialogue series by ETNO on empowering EU healthcare, we are inviting you to join us on 13 October for zooming in on the EU Smart Manufacturing sector and the role that 5G could play in strengthening it. On this occasion, we are joined by our partner Orgalim, representing Europe’s technology industries.

Together with top political leaders and industry representatives, we will be looking at 5G use-cases and some of the benefits that technology could bring to the EU Smart Manufacturing sector, including: boost the safety of workers in hazardous environments, optimise the use of resources and minimise environmental impact, increase productivity and efficiency, or contribute to cross-sector innovative ecosystems, to name a few.

"“The “normal” is never going to come back. Both the public and the private sector need to be prepared for the new reality and they have to invest in infrastructure and secured solutions to do that”, @Sigve_telenor stated #FTETNO etno.live.ft.com/agenda/session/384443

@eucopresident

Technological progress is pointless, if it doesn’t make people’s lives better. Between US "business above all" & China authoritarian state models, there’s room for an attractive and human-centred model, "Europe's way" to set global standards in the digital revolution. #FTETNO

For governments #digital is not an option it is an obligation. Europe has laid down a path to develop its digital services market, it has a common will and to a certain extent also regulation agreement - free market means smart regulation&legally permissive environment #FTETNO
