At the end of November, we held an S5GC welcome event with our three founding partners: the University of Strathclyde (which is also our host university), University of Glasgow and Scottish Futures Trust.

As well as thanking our partners for their support in setting up the Scotland 5G Centre, we wanted to start our work to build a 5G ecosystem in Scotland, connecting people and organisations who can help to realise the benefits. The event brought together over 90 5G researchers and specialists from S5GC Wave 1 projects, universities, businesses and the public sector.

Speakers at the event included our Interim Director Derek Boyd and representatives from our three founding partners. You can see their presentations by clicking on the links below.
