The north of the Netherlands is the ideal testing ground for 5G applications

11 October 2018

5G is the latest generation in mobile data communication. 5G is on its way to change the world. Economic Board Groningen initiated the 5Groningen programme to investigate how 5G can speed up and create new innovations. First we test these applications in our 5G Lab at the university campus, after which they're tested 'in real life' outside the city. This is the only rural 5G field lab in the world! The north of the Netherlands is the ideal testing ground, not only for the Netherlands or Europe, but for the whole world. Perhaps for your company too?

Partners of 5Groningen: Vodafone, Ericsson, Huawei, KPN, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy of the Netherlands, TNO, SURF, Economic Board Groningen, University of Groningen, Hanzehogeschool Groningen.

5Groningen is made possible by the European Regional Development Fund.
