EXCITING is a 24-month Horizon 2020 project, funded partly by the EC, China and Switzerland, that aims to create favourable framework conditions for efficient EU–China research and innovation collaboration in the fields of Future Internet, especially focusing on 5G and Internet of Things (IoT). It studies and compares the research and innovation ecosystem, funding programmes, large scale pilots, standardization and interoperability activities in the field of Future Internet in both Europe and China. The final outcome will be a roadmap that includes evidence-based recommendations for better IoT/5G research collaboration between Europe and China.
Eight representatives from six European partners of the project consortium gathered in Rome on November 11th following the 2nd 5G Global Event. They came from Switzerland, France, Luxemburg and Portugal. The initial planning of the project was discussed, as well as a large conference on IoT and 5G in March 2017 in China.
Along with the fruitful discussion, the project has happily launched a number of media channels to reach out and connect to all stakeholders. Stay on top of the project development with EXCITING through:
