ECO6G is a great strategic networking opportunity for policy makers, business leaders and the research community.

The i2CAT Foundation promotes and organizes ECO 6G, an event born to become an international reference point for 6G discussions.
For this first edition, key 5G and future 6G stakeholders will sit together to discuss about 6G from a European perspective, providing both the unified vision of Europe as a leading world region in 5G, and also giving voice to the individual initiatives put in place by the different member states.

We are well into the 5G era. Now is the time to envision what 6G will be.

For 6G to be a reality, we need to ask: What? Why? How? When?
These questions deserve discussion and answers to be provided by the 6G community stakeholders, which emerge from the 5G community but will also extend to new players in a highly dynamic ecosystem.
