Presentations can be found on the event website.
A full recording of the event can be watched here.
In 2024, the European election will open a new political 5-year cycle. In order to support the development of European policies, in particular, related to the computing continuum, from the IoT/Edge perspective, AIOTI has developed a vision 2024-2030 document.
In this document, besides general views on European policy, we set out our recommendations in the areas of policy, climate resilience, standardization, and research and innovation for the upcoming political cycle and the changes it will bring.
The full document can be found here.
At the end of this month, AIOTI has 184 members.
AIOTI has participated in the IEEE World Forum on IoT that was held from 12-26 October in Aveiro, Portugal.
AIOTI Steering Board Vice Chair, WG Testbeds Chair Tom De Block delivered a keynote speech at the opening of the conference, and leading sessions in the areas of mobility, sustainability, energy, manufacturing, and agriculture were provided.
Join us at the upcoming showcase, where you will have the unique chance to not only witness but actively engage with two dynamic SMEs from AIOTI. They will present their cutting-edge solutions
through demos that were made possible by their active participation in open calls. Furthermore, we are excited to share a multitude of opportunities for other SMEs to engage in EU CEI and NGI open calls. Get ready to use them as your gateway to connect with a vibrant community of companies within our association.

The 6G-XR (6G eXperimental Research infrastructure to enable next-generation XR services) project (www.6g-xr.eu/) is a Research and Innovation Action (RIA) under the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU) under the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme. The project started in January 2023 and will run for 36 months, until the end of 2025.
6G-XR’s ambition is to strengthen European leadership in 6G technologies by enabling next-generation XR services and infrastructures that will provide beyond-state-of-the-art capabilities towards the 6G era. The project will develop an experimental multisite Research Infrastructure (RI) to provide a validation platform for various 6G-use cases by developing enablers for networking and computing, radio access technologies beyond 5G, enablers for XR services with in-build federation, trial management, abstraction tools as well as energy measurement frameworks.
This is to inform you of the launch of the TrialsNet Open Call on 5G Evolved Use Cases.
TrialsNet invites European third parties such as verticals, companies (including SMEs), research centers or any other relevant entity, as well as facilities and infrastructure owners, to participate in its large-scale trials activities through the implementation of additional, diversified, and heterogeneous vertical use cases, to support:
Maximum amount of financial support for each application: 200.000 € under Option1 or, alternatively, up to 300.000 € under Option 2.
The proposed use cases and trials should address one of the main areas identified by the project:
The total available budget for this Open Call is 5.580.900 euros.
Open Call launch: 16th October 2023
Proposals submission deadline: 19th January 2024
Expected duration of participation: 12 months
The funding rate for selected projects is 100% of the declared costs (including 25% flat rate for overheads), both for profit and not profit entities.

The 5G-PPP Technology Board published the new White Paper Innovation Trends in I4.0 enabled by 5G and Beyond Networks
Abstract: The Industry 4.0 (I4.0) concept revolutionizes how processes like quality, productivity, customization, and safety are managed in manufacturing. It has developed alongside 5G technology, and the two influence each other significantly. 5G supports the communication needs of I4.0, while I4.0 is a major sector for 5G growth. This whitepaper offers a comprehensive view of I4.0 design principles, driven by collaboration between I4.0 leaders and contributors to 5G development. It also assesses the applicability of 5G for short and mid-term I4.0 challenges based on input from stakeholders. The report touches on evolving 5G technologies, like Deterministic Networking and Digital Twining, and explores the future of ecosystem dynamics, regulation, and sustainability. Ultimately, it provides valuable insights into the synergy between I4.0 and 5G, drawing from leading 5G-PPP Phase III projects.
This Info Day aims to support and guide call applicants for their upcoming project submissions, as well as invite stakeholders to connect with potential partners through matchmaking.
On Tuesday 7 November 2023, the European Commission (DG Connect) will organize an Info Day on the third CEF Digital call for the 5G & Edge Cloud for Smart Communities action.

The Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU) is pleased to unveil the selection of its new 27 research, innovation, and trial projects that will commence operations as of 1 January 2024. These projects represent a significant stride towards advancing smart networks and services, offering breakthrough innovations, experimental platforms and large-scale trials, driving world-class research and shaping the world’s digital connected future.
Erzsébet Fitori, the new SNS JU Executive Director, announced the newly selected projects today in her keynote at the 5G Techritory 2023 event.
In its second phase, the SNS JU is moving towards more detailed design and system optimisation while integrating micro-electronics and sustainability as core dimensions. The aim is to build first-class 6G technology capacities across Europe and to strongly contribute to standardisation efforts. With an EU budget of €130 million, this second call will further support and accelerate ground-breaking research in 6G technologies throughout Europe and beyond. International collaboration is key to achieving a globally accepted 6G standard. One project that was selected focuses on EU-US research cooperation.
The SNS JU now counts a portfolio of 62 research, innovation, and trials projects, with 27 new projects selected following the evaluation of proposals submitted under the SNS JU second call. The 27 projects announced today launch the second phase of the SNS Roadmap, which will be further expanded with the future 3rd and 4th SNS JU Calls and the resulting projects that will kickstart their activities within 2025 and 2026 respectively. The launch of the new projects follows the formal decision of the SNS JU Governing Board.
