Liverpool 5G Health and Social Care Testbed Showcase Event

posted in: News | 0

On 26th March the Liverpool 5G Testbed consortium held a showcase event in Sensor City, celebrating the first year of the project. 

The event told the story of the project’s first 12 months and lessons we’ve learned about adopting and integrating technology into health and social care services. The full house of delegates had had a chance to speak to all the testbed partners and see the products they’ve trialled on the 5G network, and to join in  workshops – focusing on 5G technologies in the morning and health and social care applications in the afternoon.

The event was also an opportunity to announce …

The announcement was jointly made with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) at the event at Sensor City, Liverpool.
