Today signed memorandum

Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia today signed a memorandum of understanding for the ‘Via Baltica – North’ initiative to develop an experimental 5G cross-border corridor where self-driving vehicles can be tested.

Europe is currently the biggest experimental area for 5G technology, and has ambitions to lead in large-scale testing and the early deployment of 5G infrastructure, enabling connected and automated mobility. In this context, a specific call for proposals within the 5G Public Private Partnership, with indicative funding of €50 million, has been announced for 5G projects for Connected and Automated Mobility. This will support 3 specific 5G cross-border corridors: the Brenner path between Bologna and Munich (Italy-Austria-Germany), Metz-Merzig-Luxembourg (France-Germany-Luxembourg), and Porto-Vigo and Evora-Merida (Portugal-Spain).
