Whilst earlier network generations have been designed as general purpose connectivity platforms with limited differentiation capabilities across use cases, the situation is changing for the definition of 5G networks. 5G will create an ecosystem for technical and business innovation involving vertical markets such as automotive, energy, food and agriculture, city management, government, healthcare, manufacturing, public transportation, and many more. It will serve a larger portfolio of applications with a corresponding multiplicity of requirements ranging from high reliability to ultra-low latency going through high bandwidth and mobility.
This workshop targeted the presentation and discussion of white papers elaborated by vertical sectors in partnership with the ICT industry to identify how future innovative digital business models in various industries may impact future 5G networks.
It followed from the 1st 5G for Verticals Workshop, co-organised by the European Commission and the 5G Infrastructure Association in Brussels on June 18, 2015 with the automotive, energy, factories of the future / manufacturing, health, media / entertainment and ICT sectors.

These papers are intended to discuss the different aspects of the individual sectors, such as:
