About this Category

5G technology has the potential to enable further digital transformation in a wide range of sectors and industries, and to bring high economic and social value. However, for this to happen, it takes true collaboration between the mobile industry, enterprises and governments to drive the adoption of 5G within a given domain.

This prize rewards partnerships, which show credible ambitions and sustainable economic models in achieving their 5G project, partnerships that demonstrate how 5G can truly transform industries to ultimately bring 5G to life for a better future.

This award is open to all types of partnerships that provide mobile products, devices, services, solutions, and applications. Submissions need to be joint with an enterprise partner and/or government body to truly demonstrate cross-sector partnership in action.
