The European 5G Pioneer Award, presented in cooperation with the European Commission, will recognise an exceptional achievement of a front runner in preparing for commercial 5G service launch in Europe.
This award also supports the European Commission strategic objective set out in the “5G Action Plan for Europe” that calls for early commercial launch of 5G services in each European Member State by end of 2020. In this regard, it underlines the importance of 5G trials to foster cross-sector partnerships and lead the way to deployment of innovative 5G services.
This award is open to all companies, organisations, municipalities or partnerships, which have launched fully-fledged commercial or pre-commercial 5G service initiatives in the EU, (i.e. 5G services opened or about to be available to consumers and/or businesses under commercial terms), at city, regional, or other appropriate geographic level.
The award will be co-presented by the European Commission and the GSMA at the GLOMO Award Ceremony.
