The research*eu focus magazine on 5G is produced by the Network Technologies Unit (E1) of the European Commission’s DG CONNECT. This Unit supports research on wireless, optical and satellite communication technologies that, together, will help meet the demands of the future internet. The Internet of Things (IoT) is also a priority research area. This magazine is a concrete response to calls by citizens for more openness and communication on science and technology developments. Through a communityfocused approach, the magazine seeks to broaden understanding of the work of internet researchers,... innovators and entrepreneurs.
