5G-DRIVE: 5G Harmonised research and trials for service evolution between EU and China


5G-DRIVE aims to bridge current 5G development in Europe and China through joint trials and research activities, in order to facilitate technology convergence, spectrum harmonisation and business innovation before large-scale commercial deployments of 5G networks.

5G-DRIVE will therefore develop key 5G technologies and pre-commercial testbeds for eMBB and V2X services in collaboration with the twinned Chinese project led by China Mobile. Trials for testing and validating key 5G functionalities, services and network planning will be conducted in eight cities across the EU and China.
