Events and Publications

Project events

5G-MoNArch had organised two events: in Turin on May 24th, 2019 and in Hamburg on June 5th, 2019, to provide a live experience of the two testbeds to the public, disseminate the project’s main conceptual results, and the results of the (simulation-based) technical verification and socio-economic validation of concepts.

Please have a look at our summary pages for the two events in Turin and Hamburg

Project posters

The posters below have been presented at the events organised by 5G-MoNArch, or at conferences where 5G-MoNArch was present.
