I started to work with Martel team on the EU Horizon2020 project, 5G-DRIVE, in September 2018, which is a collaboration project between the EU and China. In this project, Martel leads the coordination with China partners, dissemination and communication activities of the whole project. The Martel team is the most experienced, competent, and pleasant to work with. I look forward to continuing collaboration with Martel.

We are very proud of working together with Martel professionals in EU-H2020 projects. Active leadership is not limited to dissemination and exploitation activities but facilitating the whole research and development environment and leaving freedom to operate for technical experts is highly appreciated. This is even more emphasized in the previous project where 5G and V2X collaboration between the EU and China twinning projects were established during COVID-19 outbreak.

I have the privilege to work with Martel in an EU project which collaborates with major mobile operators and vendors in Chinese. We work together to facilitate the cooperation with Chinese partners on joint 5G trials. Martel has done the excellent job to organize joint events and maintain communication flows. Meanwhile, Martel leads the impact creation work in the project. I trust their professional work which makes the project dissemination very efficient.

The China Mobile 5G large-scale trial project twins successfully with the EC’s 5G-DRIVE project. Such cooperation has gained acknowledgement from both the Chinese government and European Commission, regarding its impact on facilitating the EU-China 5G collaboration. During the cooperation process, Ms. Kai Zhang, as a representative of Martel, acts as the EU-China relationship manager between two projects, has actively engaged and interacted with China Mobile, the coordinator of the twin project, as well as its various Chinese partners. The meaningful communication and liaison has led to a number of cooperation outcomes, such as the signing of the cooperation agreement at the start of the project (witnessed by the EC and the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology), multiple joint cooperation meetings and strategic discussions, which bridged both sides to the fruitful technical cooperation.
