Short description

The “COREnect” (European Core Technologies for future connectivity systems and components) is operating in the frame of the 5G PPP, Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation Programme. Τhis 2-year CSA project that started in July 2020, aims at developing a high-level strategic roadmap of core technologies for future connectivity systems and components, targeting the next generation telecommunications networks and services. It will cover the full 5G value chain including materials, components, subsystem integration, connectivity platforms and will address vertical industry sectors in areas such as health, energy, manufacturing, automotive and smart cities, among others.

To achieve this goal the COREnect consortium involves prominent European industrial and academia players from the telecommunications and the microelectronics sectors, as well as industrial associations representing the Smart Networks and Services and Key Digital Technologies communities.
