EuCNC is one of the most prominent telecommunications and networking conferences in Europe. It brings together cutting-edge research and world-renowned industries and businesses which lead the implementation of 5G throughout Europe and beyond. EuCNC 2019 was colocated with the Global 5G Event, which brought together the world 5G industrial associations: 5G-IA, IMT-2020, 5G-Forum, 5G-MF, 5G-Brasil and 5G-Americas.

Dr Christofi joined the more than 600 delegates for a programme featuring keynotes and presentations from Pearse O'Donohue, Director for ‘Future Networks', DG CONNECT, European Commission, Tomás Alonso, Head of Product Technology in Orange, Spain and Ulrich Dropmann, Head of Standardization, Bell Labs - CTO, Nokia, Germany. This year’s edition focused on various aspects of 5G communications systems and networks, including cloud and virtualisation solutions, management technologies, and vertical application areas. 

‘Every year, EuCNC brings together researchers from all over the world to present the latest research results, especially those from Horizon 2020 projects. It was an excellent opportunity to introduce the new 5G-SOLUTIONS project, which aims at conducting 5G field trials and bringing this strategic technology closer to realization across 5 industries!’ said Dr. Christofi.

Supported by the European Commission, EuCNC is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and the European Association for Signal Processing, two reference organisations for the advancement of 5G.
