EWIA at the 7th European 5G Conference
13 & 14 March 2023 | Bluepoint, Brussels
EWIA is once again present at the European 5G conference, taking place on 13-14 March at the BluePoint, Brussels. Our Chair of the Communications Working Group Jean-Pierre Faisan will be speaking about 5G and Sustainability in a panel discussion about “Harnessing 5G to help achieve Europe’s climate targets”.
The session will explore the impact of 5G on climate change from different angles. It will look at the work that is being done to mitigate the impact of 5G rollout on the environment; and crucially, explore the potential that 5G and the new use cases that it will enable can help play a role in helping Europe in meeting ambitious national and EU-wide 2030 goals for decarbonization.
We will try to answer questions such as:
- How can 5G be best harnessed to help contribute to the EU’s 2030 Climate Target Plan and more broadly to the UN Sustainable Development Goals?
- How can policymakers, connectivity providers and vertical users work together to identify the best ways to deploy and use 5G based applications and services across different sectors in order to accelerate climate actions and the transition to a circular economy?
- What 5G use cases have the biggest potential in helping to reduce carbon emissions and which sectors could be positively impacted in the best way? What work needs to be done to maximise this potential?
- What is being done at a European level to support both the public and private sectors to accelerate their green and digital transformation and to reduce their carbon footprint?
EWIA will also host the networking reception and give a welcome address. The reception will take place following the conclusion of the first day of the event and it will be open to all in-person attendees.
