As the end of phase 1 approaches, it is time to remind of phase 1 key achievements.
The approach of the PPP projects and programme Golden Nuggets was initiated mid-2016, starting first with the definition of the key projects achievement after Year 1. The projects Golden Nuggets were collected on individual basis and reviewed at programme level (Technology Board) before the European Commission Year 1 annual review, to develop a 360° understanding of the overall Phase 1 projects portfolio achievements and allow the different projects to fully understand their individual contributions inside these global Phase 1 achievements. The overall approach of the PPP Programme Golden Nuggets was then defined and organized in 3 steps. It was decided to define top-down 10 (minimum) – 20 (maximum) PPP Phase 1 Programme Golden Nuggets at Technology Board level, considering the projects Golden Nuggets and the proposed categorization of major achievements (step 1). Followed the definition of the arborescence and the up-to-date definition of the projects Golden Nuggets under these programme Golden Nuggets (step 2). Then finally the implementation of the programme and projects Golden Nuggets on the PPP website, hyperconnecting the projects achievements to the projects websites and related documents (e.g. Deliverables, White Papers…) (step 3).
The 15 PPP Phase 1 Programme Golden Nuggets are presented in the following figure, that was released in January 2017 and included in the PPP MWC 2017 White Paper “5G innovations for new business opportunities” and in several 5G-IA presentations since February 2017.

5G spectrum WS @CrownCom’17
Lisbon, Portugal – September 20-22
The 5G Spectrum Workshop is organised in the context of CrownCom2017 that will take place on 20th-22nd September 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal.
Research has shown that the fixed spectrum allocation policy commonly adopted today suffer from the low spectrum utilization problem. Academic and regulatory bodies have focused on dynamic spectrum access to fully utilize the scarce spectrum resource. Cognitive radio, with the capability to flexibly adapt its parameters, has been proposed as the enabling technology for future spectrum management.
The 5G Spectrum Workshop will focus on creating discussion around the problems arisen in spectrum access, utilization, allocation and management, as well as validation and experimental results produced so far.
Info Day 1: Warsaw, Poland – September 28 / Info Day 2: Ljubljana, Slovenia – October 17 / Info Day 3: Budapest, Hungary – November 9/10
So far three Info Days are planned. The infodays will explain the nature of the different calls, share some suggestions on the nature of the projects expected, and – most important – give a the opportunity to present ideas and seek like-minded partners for proposals.

Most of Worldwide ICT companies exhibit at Futurecom, as well as Brazilian Fixed and Mobile Operators. Take part!
Jean-Pierre Bienaimé, Secretary General of the 5G Infrastructure Association & Chairman of the 5G Initiative Steering Board will be there and make a presentation.
The 15th annual TU-Automotive EUrope Conference and Exhibition (6-7 November 2017, Münich) – Europe’s largest event for the connected car – will discuss how to harness advancements in technogloy like AI & Autonomy to deliver personalised, sustainable mobility. Past speakers include BMW, car2go, Renault, PSA and more. New features include round table and a start-up stage.
The purpose of URLLC 2017 is to enable dialogue between vertical industries, mobile network operators, solution providers and the global standards bodies in order to give practical insights into what are essential and also realistic reliability and latency parameters for the various verticals and then explore the means by which these can be delivered across part or all of the wireless network infrastructure and with what cost and engineering premium.
