Madrid, March 21st, 2022. The Secretary General of Innovation of the Ministry of Science and Innovation, Teresa Riesgo, and the General Director of Research and Technological Innovation of the Community of Madrid, Ana Isabel Cremades, visited last Wednesday 16th of March, the 5TONIC facilities in Madrid, with the aim of reinforcing the importance of public-private collaboration in the development of technological innovation projects, for the improvement of the future of communications networks.
The importance of having this kind of collaboration spaces in the industry was stressed throughout the visit, so that they act as hubs for the different vertical sectors, and where the technology companies in charge of developing the new networks, can work together with the rest of the companies and organizations.
5TONIC is a hub for knowledge sharing in 5G technology between industries and large companies and SMEs. It provides a network infrastructure for the development and testing of new products and services based on this technology. Thus, all key stakeholders are involved throughout the process. The laboratory aims to turn the theoretical capabilities of the fifth generation of networks into enablers of real use cases applicable to different vertical industries.
5TONIC was initiated by Telefónica and IMDEA Networks Institute with a clear vision to create an open research and innovation ecosystem laboratory in which industry and academia come together to boost technology and business innovative ventures. The laboratory promotes joint project development, joint entrepreneurial ventures, discussion fora, events and conference sites, all in an international environment of the highest impact. 5TONIC serves to show the capabilities and interoperation of pre-commercial 5G equipment, services and applications, by leading global companies in the 5G arena. The laboratory was recently awarded Digital Innovation Hub status by the European Commission.
