5G in 5 Days week was an exciting opportunity for young people to work with industry experts, gain invaluable experience, increase their skills and knowledge, and raise their profile in the region. We provided an opportunity for up to six young people aged 18-24 to discover how 5G technology works, the benefits it brings and explore the real-world improvements it can make to our lives.

Our successful applicants featured in and helped to create a social media series to educate the wider community on 5G technology and its potential. Participants will create video diaries that will help the public learn about how 5G will impact our region. you can view these here 

Participants had exclusive access to our brand new 5PRING innovation centres. Those taking part had the opportunity to meet leading industry experts and learn about the key sectors we are working with such as transport, manufacturing, health & social care; areas where the West Midlands has key strengths and where 5G can make a difference in transforming productivity.
