As part of the SNS JU Governance mode, there will be Working Groups (WGs) formed to address certain issues and publish consolidated views established within the SNS Community.

There are three basic types of Working groups:

  • SNS Industry Working Groups (6G IA WGs) – established under a mandate from the 6G IA
  • SNS Project Working groups (SNS WGs) – established under the mandate of the inter-project Steering Board  (SB), and
  • SNS Strategic Working Groups (SNS GB WGs) – established under the mandate of the SNS JU Governing Board (GB)

This page introduces the  SNS Industry Working Groups  – also known as the 6G IA Working groups  – in terms of their primary ambitions.

Depending on their mandates and purpose, the different 6G-IA WGs may have different participation rules. Some may require 6G-IA membership but many are open to all organizations in SNS JU (e.g., Pre-standardization WG, Trials,…). However, in 6G IA WGs eligibility for Chairmanship of 6G-IA WGs as well as voting (if/when needed) is limited to 6G-IA members.


This list may be updated form time to time as some groups fulfill their mandates and close, while other, new topics, may arise prompting a new group to be established.  The titles of the groups will become active links as soon as hte details of each group are ready for publication.
