About the 6G IA

The 6G Smart Networks and Services Industry Association (6G-IA) is the voice of European Industry and Research for next generation networks and services.

Its primary objective is to contribute to Europe’s leadership on 5G, 5G evolution and SNS/6G research.

The 6G-IA represents the private side in both the 5G Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP) and the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU). In the 5G-PPP and SNS JU, the European Commission represents the public side.

The 6G-IA brings together a global industry community of telecoms & digital actors, such as operators, manufacturers, research institutes, universities, verticals, SMEs and ICT associations.

The 6G-IA carries out a wide range of activities in strategic areas including standardization, frequency spectrum, R&D projects, technology skills, collaboration with key vertical industry sectors, notably for the development of trials, and international cooperation.

SPECIAL NOTE: With regard to the submission of Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU) project proposals for topics where a minimum participation of 6G-IA Members is required, please note that organizations planning to become a Member of the 6G Smart Networks and Services Industry Association before the SNS JU calls submission deadline on 18th April 2024 should apply well in advance as membership applications take time to be processed. The 6G-IA Association cannot guarantee that any membership applications submitted after 31st March 2024 will be reviewed/approved in time for the SNS call deadline on 18.04.2024.
