5G Corridors Workshop 10/10/23

The GUIDE project, with the support of HaDEA and DG CNECT, organised this workshop to review the two 5G Strategic Deployment Agendas published in 2020 in the fields of rail and road.  The objective is to provide guidance to 5G corridor deployment efforts from the public and private sectors and stimulate EU-funded project pipeline building.

The deployment of 5G cross-border corridors along transport paths throughout Europe will contribute significantly to the green and digital transformation of the EU economy and society.  In particular, 5G-enabled Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) is seen as a major enabler for improved transport safety, optimised traffic management, reduced CO₂ emissions, and industrial competitiveness of all transport and mobility related sectors.  This includes all aspects of road, rail, waterways and logistics as they can all use the advanced infrastructure to optimise their use cases and services.

This workshop built on CEF Digital Call 1 projects and engage with stakeholders in strategic conversations aiming at defining priority deployment roadmaps, various cooperation models, while identifying and sharing best practices.  The workshop took a participatory approach, whereby stakeholders involved in Call 1 and possibly forthcoming Call 2 projects, as well as other potential participants in future waves of deployment and the supporting public authorities could exchange ideas, insights and help building a community around 5G-CAM in order to move forward with deployment of 5G Corridors. The workshop also facilitated match-making discussions and encouraged the involvement of relevant players in future calls.
