Nordic-Baltic collaboration on 5G development

The Nordic-Baltic 5G Monitoring tool project will contribute to the development of a more integrated, connected, and inclusive Nordic Region by developing and maintaining a tool to monitor the roll out of 5G in the Nordic-Baltic countries. The aim is also to identify concrete examples of applications of 5G technology within different verticals. The project will organize matchmaking events to connect stakeholders within identified focus areas with the intention to drive innovation by showcasing applications and facilitating connections between actors.  The expectation is that this could promote cross-border collaboration in the industry verticals, presenting great potential for Nordic-Baltic added value. The project runs from August 2021 to December 2023.

The project is financed by The Nordic Council of Ministers, and it is run by Nordregio.
