Sociedade Portuguesa de Inovação (SPI – www.spieurope.eu) organised and hosted in Porto, on 22-23 January 2019, the final meeting of the EXCITING (EU-China Study on IoT and 5G) project.

Over the course of two days, the partners analysed the work and activities carried out during the project. They discussed the various activities and results achieved in relation to standardization, interoperability and the implementation of large-scale trials, always focusing on cooperation between Europe and China. On January 22, the partners dedicated part of the meeting to a webinar on technical and political perspectives between Europe and China.

In addition to SPI, the meeting was attended by Martel Innovate (Switzerland), InterInnov (France), InnoTSD (France), University of Luxembourg (Luxemburg), Mandat International (Switzerland) and University of Surrey (UK).
