Advanced Engineering 2021
Marc Funnell, Digital Director, and Dr Enrique Garcia, Chief Technology Officer, will also be presenting over the two days.
Join Digital Catapult's webinar series on industrial 5G innovation, showcasing real-world examples of 5G applications in the UK, in which the NCC and partners including 5G-Encode will be participating in.
Digital Catapult is a 5G technical and innovation centre of excellence, and is working closely with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to drive industrial 5G adoption in the UK, to launch a series of industry events to showcase real examples of 5G applications, and maximise learnings for organisations in the manufacturing and logistics sectors.
The first online webinar of a four-part series will focus on open innovation in 5G, shining a spotlight on innovative solutions and approaches enabled by startups and scaleups who have joined the Industrial 5G Testbeds and Trials programme, as well as those taking part in other government funded 5G initiatives and accelerators such as 5PRING. It will also highlight challenges and lessons learnt from innovators who are collaborating with industry, offering an overview of the benefits and best practice within open innovation, as well as future opportunities for innovation in smart cities, construction, manufacturing and logistics.
The event will host a panel of industry experts including leading global infrastructure operator Ferrovial, which is exploring 5G-enabled technologies to create a safe, dynamic and efficient construction industry. This webinar will serve as a means of exploring different opportunities in which businesses of all sizes can work together to accelerate the adoption of 5G through open innovation and sustained relationships.
Who should attend
This event is designed for industry sector managers, executives and team members who are considering digital solutions and open innovation to help optimise and develop their business. It is also a great opportunity for technology innovators who want to learn more about 5G capabilities to build new solutions or expand current value propositions. Finally, the investment community wishing to find out more about ground breaking solutions exploiting new 5G capabilities can also benefit from attending this event.
