Ericsson launches 5G for Europe program

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) is broadening the scope of its 5G research and development initiatives in Europe, moving beyond Sweden to include a range of European markets.

Ericsson says its cross-industry program brings together industries, the public sector and leading universities to strengthen the competitiveness of the European industry. The program's academic and research partners include major technical universities such as Technische Universität Dresden in Germany and King's College in London. Industry partners include enterprises such as wiseSense, Weiss Robotics and MyOmega System Technology in Germany and Zucchetti Centro Sistemi in Italy.

In March 2015, Ericsson launched the 5G for Sweden R&D program, together with partners in Swedish industry and academia. 5G for Europe broadens that initiative to seven countries and 10 institutions, with more partners to be added over time. Release
