5G IA Associate Membership

The 6G Infrastructure Association (6G IA) is committed to foster 5G evolution and 6G Smart Networks and Services research, development and deployment in Europe.

In addition to Full Members, 5G IA Statutes allow qualifying organizations to join as Associate Members.

Typically, Associate Members are legal entities whose core business is not in the network infrastructures or Smart Networks and Services value chains, but their business represents interests that are relevant to the 5G/6G evolution and/or they can contribute to the evolution of 5G towards SNS / 6G.

By definition, Associate Members are legal entities, complying with some of the following criteria:

  • be involved in significant R&D activities in Europe,
  • contribute to and/or support the overall value chain,
  • be an organisation that represents interests that are relevant to the HEurope 5G Infrastructure PPP.

Associate Members may join the Association by invitation or by application. Legal entities meeting the criteria shall also have the right to apply for associate membership by providing a written notice to the Chairperson.

If you wish to apply for Associate Membership, please submit a request to  5g-i-a-membership(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)5g-ppp.eu stating clearly what sort of community you represent, what sort of value exchange your membership would bring and some information on your relation to European R&D.

Your  application will be forwarded to the Board of the 6G Infrastructure Association who shall decide on all applications – taking into account the above criteria.  You will be informed about the status of your application as quickly as possible. Membership applications can be submitted anytime.
