Within the 5G-PPP there are a number of cross-project work groups where the work of multiple projects can be converged into identifying the shared issues and developing supported program level position on technical and strategic items.
The currently active work groups have their origins in both 5G-Infrastructure Association activities and from decisions on needs by the 5G-PPP projects themselves.

|5G Infrastructure Association||Identify standardization and regulatory bodies to align with e.g. ETSI, 3GPP, IEEE and other relevant standards bodies, & ITU-R (incl. WPs) and WRC (including e.g. ECC PT1). Develop a roadmap of relevant standardization and regulatory topics for 5G: Evaluate existing roadmaps at international level; Propose own roadmap for 5G being aligned at international level. Influencing pre-standardization on 5G and related R&D: Potentially propose where topics should be standardized; Influence timing on R&D work programs (e.g. EC WPs)|

|5G Infrastructure Association||Promote research results in the spectrum area obtained by 5G PPP/H2020 projects as well as relevant FP7 projects, Setting up of a dialogue between 5G PPP projects concerning potential synergies and common interests across projects in spectrum related issues, Pursue the convergence of results on spectrum topics from the different projects to maximize the achievable outcome towards relevant technical bodies, Establish a knowledge base from European and other Global project results concerning advances in spectrum research, Liaise with spectrum groups or entities in regulatory bodies and industry associations, Work for improved understanding of collaborative spectrum research importance|
|5G Architecture WG
Simone Redana, Nokia
|5G-PPP Projects||The goal of this Working Group is to serve as a common platform to facilitate the discussion between 5GPPP projects developing architectural concepts and components and foster the discussions on the basis of the KPI’s described in the 5GPPP contract. The group could also facilitate consensus building on the 5G architecture.|
|SDN / NDF WG
Josep Martrat, ATOS
Carlos Jesus Bernardos, UCIII
|5G-PPP Projects||The purpose of this WG is to analyse and address unification and applicability of key research topics related to Software Networking including software defined concepts, infrastructures, systems and components for Wire and- Wireless Networks, including Networked Clouds, IoT and Services, i.e. Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) as developed and promoted by the 5G PPP projects.|
|Network Management & QoS WG
Kieran Sullivan, Waterford Institute of Technology
|5G-PPP Projects||Network Management, Quality of Service and Network Security are three themes closely correlated:
|Vision and Societal Challenges WG
Salaheddine Elayoubi, Orange
|5G Infrastructure Association||Develop a consensus in Europe on 5G systems / infrastructures / services, Identify vertical application domains which would benefit from 5G (views of other sectors on 5G requirements) and associated challenges, Identify the societal, economic, environmental, business and technological benefits obtainable from the realization of 5G main concepts, Collect publicly available visions and major technical trends from industry, research community and available information from other regions, Identify commonalities, bottlenecks and differences in visions and technical trends, Prepare input documents for Pre-Standardization and Spectrum Working Groups and International Cooperation Activity, Develop H2020 call proposals for 5G PPP in partnership with the EC|
Jean-Philippe Wary, Orange
|5G Infrastructure Association||The purpose of the group is to bring together the projects within the 5G-PPP that have common interest in the development and progression of topics related to security. The group will ensure, to as great extent as possible, that the projects are working in a complimentary manner towards consistent goals, exchanging ideas, minimizing the duplication of effort, contributing towards relevant standards and where possible cooperating on the development of compatible components, demonstrators, the exchange of data and results and the interworking of communication layers, where applicable.|

|Networld2020||The main objectives of the SME Working Group are:
Help and support SMEs participation in the 5G PPP and more generally in EU R&D projects,
including (but not limited to) reaching the target of at least 20% of the 5G PPP funding going to SMEs.
Improve visibility of SMEs in the 5G PPP and in general in EU R&D programmes, and ease/promote participation in NetWorld2020.Activate channels that may enable, facilitate and promote SME contribution into the NetWorld2020 SRIA and
research topics, and SME involvement through other strategic documents related to NetWorld2020 and to the 5G PPP.
Ensure that the interests of SMEs, a key player in the EU economy, are adequately taken into account, more particularly in NetWorld2020 and in the 5G PPP.
Act as representative/interlocutor of SMEs in the telecom domain, more particularly in NetWorld2020 and in the 5G PPP.
Help SMEs access European funds, in the 5G PPP and beyond. The WG could e.g. “pre-digest” material and help SMEs find their way into 5G-PPP related funding and beyond.
Analyze the participation of SMEs in projects, potentially prepare questionnaire and transmit the conclusions and results to European Commission, for the 5G PPP in particular

|5G Infrastructure Association||The Trials Working Group was launched by 5G Infrastructure Association in September 2016 after the publication of the 5G Manifesto of industry in Europe and in the context of the 5G Action Plan of the EU Commission. According to the 5G Manifesto industry in Europe will develop by beginning of 2017 a European trial roadmap on technology trials and Pan-European trials with vertical sector use cases.
5G Infrastructure Association is hosting this Working Group in order to provide a neutral place for such discussions. The Working Group is open for
Membership in 5G Infrastructure Association is not required to participate in the activities.
The objectives of the Working Group are as follows:
Cooperation in the Working Group is by e-Mail, conference calls and where needed by physical meetings.
Expected deliverables are:
The 5G Action Plan of the EU Commission is expecting the European Trial Roadmap by March 2017.
The 5G-PPP steering board reviews the activities and the mandates of these groups at regular intervals and decides on their status.
