SNS-ICE is a coordination support action which is building a collaboration environment for European and global actors involved in the preparation of 6G smart networks and services (SNS).
It will support the SNS Joint Undertaking (SNS JU) in presenting, leveraging, and positioning their activities and achievements in major European and global fora. The project will work at a global level with other regions, where 6G activities are planned and ongoing. Key standardization activities will be also monitored, and main roadmaps and trends will be communicated back to the SNS JU projects.
The project will also seek to align activities across the landscape by establish dialogues at a European level between peer Horizon Europe Partnerships, national initiatives, research and development clusters, etc., targeting the exchange of information, plans and priorities.
SNS ICE will create opportunities for tailor-cut 6G solutions and their early adoption by the verticals industries as it engages vertical industries in identifying their requirements and promoting the SNS JU solutions to them. This exchange of ideas will contribute significantly to secure Europe’s leading role in the definition, provision, and exploitation of 6G solutions.
Within SNS-ICE, Trust-IT will be supporting EU research in transferring 6G technologies into relevant standards-setting organisations, building on its role in the 6G-IA Pre-Standardization WG and links with the ETSI research support programme and other relevant SDOs. Trust-IT contributes to assessing and engaging with industry verticals, building on its leadership of the 5G User Event series, successful cooperation with related associations and networked community of verticals, telecom, and SME stakeholders in the EU and globally. With its participation in cybersecurity projects and as a member of ECSO and contributor to WGs on SMEs and critical infrastructures, it will also support related activities within this CSA.
Trust-IT leads two tasks specifically T3.2 “Placing SNS in relation with verticals’ roadmaps” and T4.3 “Exploitation”. It will also contribute to several tasks including:
The main results, once delivered, will include:
