New H2020 ICT-41 5G Project VITAL-5G kicks off!

On the 26th and 27th of January 2021, the new 5G Research and Innovation project VITAL-5G Project “Vertical Innovations in Transport And Logistics over 5G experimentation facilities“ held a successful online kick-off meeting with the participation of partners and the coordination of WINGS ICT SOLUTIONS.

VITAL-5G is part of 5G PPP Phase 3 and will last for 3 years. The project will showcase the added-value of 5G connectivity for the European transport & logistics (T&L) sector by adopting a multi-modal approach containing major logistics hubs for freight and passengers (sea ports, river ports, warehouse/logistics hubs, highways, etc.) as well as the respective stakeholders (road operators, port authorities, 3rd party logistics operators), thus creating an end-to-end chain of connected T&L services accommodating the entire continent.

During the meeting, all 16 partners of the consortium introduced their organisations and the discussion was mainly focused on the role of each partner in the project and the work that needs to be performed under each Work Package. Moreover, the main goal was to establish a common vision for the project and lay out the project management framework.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 101016567.
