Eureka/Celtic Next International Collaboration in 5G R and D – Competition Briefing Event
Following the CELTIC-NEXT Proposers Day event in London on 5 February 2019, Innovate UK and the KTN are holding a briefing event in support of Innovate UK’s “CELTIC-NEXT spring 2019: innovative 5G infrastructure and applications” competition
The aim of this competition is to encourage the development of 5G in an international collaborative environment by helping UK organisations take part in the CELTIC programme.
We are looking for collaborative R&D proposals to develop:
- Innovative 5G infrastructure technologies that make use of artificial intelligence (AI) in network operation or multi-access edge computing (MEC)
- Applications and services that use 5G networks to offer new or improved user experiences
- 5G features in satellite networks or 5G applications and services integrating satellites
Applications and services can be about the Internet of Things (IoT), the tactile internet, mission-critical applications, infotainment mobile services or immersive technologies.
Total funding available for this spring competition is up to £1 million. Projects’ total UK eligible costs are expected to be between £400,000 and £2 million and aim for a grant of around £500,000 as we are looking to fund two projects. There will be another similar competition in the autumn with an equivalent amount of funding.
