Franco-German cooperation in 5G private networks

As part of the Article 45 economic stimulus package, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) is cooperating with the French Ministère de l’Économie, des Finances et de la Souveraineté industrielle et numérique (MEFSIN). The aim of the program is to intensify cooperation in the field of "Technical development and application systems for private 5G networks". In the funded projects, French and German partners will develop and test joint innovations in the field of virtualization of 5G subsystems and components for the flexible design of the campus networks. In addition, they will investigate their interoperability via open interfaces. The Franco-German cooperation will strengthen the establishment of an ecosystem of development partnerships and ultimately the digital sovereignty of both countries. It aims to help lower market entry barriers in Europe and open up the 5G communications market for new providers of industry-specific solutions for private 5G networks from France and Germany. The four selected projects will receive total funding of € 17.7 million from the BMWK and the MEFSIN.
