Call for Membership for the new ‘Smart Networks and Services’ Association

The 5G Infrastructure Association (5G IA) is preparing for the next chapter in the mobile communications story with the new Smart Networks and Services (SNS) European Partnership in the framework of the Horizon Europe programme, and is expanding its membership.

As the Horizon 2020 framework programme comes to an end and the new Horizon Europe framework programme launches, the 5G IA, as the private side representative of the 5G Public-Private Partnership (5G PPP), is preparing for the evolution of the 5G activities into the Smart Networks and Services context, which will set the foundations for 6G. Information is available at

The 5G IA published an Open Letter with the announcement of the changes together with an invitation to all organisations (including associations) and enterprises to join the new initiative. The letter also highlights some important dates and deadlines that may be important if you want to propose your organisation to be proactive in facilitating these changes in the next period.
