More than 750 million euros: this is the amount that will be mobilized for the 5G acceleration strategy and the networks of the future, within the framework of France 2030.
5G and future telecommunications network technologies indeed represent a lever of competitiveness for the territories as well as an issue of national sovereignty. It is in this context that the Government launched a dedicated acceleration strategy on July 6, 2021.
Terms and objectives of the call for projects
This new support system will make it possible to finance innovative projects carried out in France on:
- the launch of research and development work in order to anticipate developments in 5G and the arrival of 6G and future generations of networks,
- the development of sovereign solutions for telecom networks guaranteeing a high level of security and reliability,
- improving the environmental impact of telecom networks, in conjunction with the eco-responsible digital acceleration strategy.
With this new call for projects, we are positioning France at the forefront of global innovation in the network technologies of the future and continuing the momentum instilled by France 2030 to guarantee the country’s technological sovereignty. Jean-Noël Barrot, Minister Delegate in charge of the Digital Transition and Telecommunications
Reposition France on future network technologies
5G and subsequent generations of mobile networks are a market with strong growth potential in which France has real innovation capabilities and a dynamic ecosystem.
France 2030 has thus already supported, within the framework of the “5G Sovereign Solutions” call for projects, 11 advanced research projects on telecoms and 29 projects relating to the development of sovereign solutions involving 41 actors including 22 SMEs and start-ups and five research centers, with particular attention paid to technologies enabling the implementation of high-performance and secure private corporate networks.
