The EC H2020 5G Infrastructure PPP is an ambitious programme with ambitious KPIs. The programme is organized over 3 phases: the total planned financial contribution of the EC is in the range of 700 ME for a total number of 90-100 contractual research projects.
The 5G PPP programme, as stated in the contract with the EC, is clearly planned to be more effective than standalone projects by having a strategy of working together through a program level Steering Board and a Technical Board bringing all 5G PPP projects together. The success of the 5G PPP programme is significantly dependent on how the various projects can complement each other across the 3 planned phases and how effectively they can interface and cooperate to create a durable and strong impact, creating significantly more synergy beyond individual fragmented project efforts.
This 5G PPP Projects Heritage figure (Version 1.0) depicts the PPP programmatic connections between projects over the different phases.
Three categories are depicted in the figure:
A Version 2.0 5G PPP Projects Heritage figure will be developed/released in Autumn 2020, integrating the ICT-53 and ICT-42 projects.
A Version 3.0 5G PPP Projects Heritage figure is planned for Spring 2021, integrating the ICT-52 and ICT-41 Projects, which are currently the latest 5G PPP planned projects to be contracted under the H2020 5G PPP programme.
