Borrill: There is one project that is called the 5G innovation centre, 5GIC, led by the university of Surrey in England, and there are many industrial participants. There the METIS project, an industry collaboration, and there are some EU-driven projects.
eeNews Europe: How would you assess the role of Europe in this technology - will the business be driven more by Asian companies as this is the case in 3G and 4G?
Borrill: It seems that the reason for the EU funding is that the EU governments want to try to recover the business back to Europe. For mobile phones, in GSM, 3G and Wideband CDMA Europe really led the world in the technology. In LTE Europe lost this leading position. There are governments that seem determined to bring that technology back to Europe; in particular the British and German governments who signed an agreement to do joint developments so we can rebuild our expertise, build the telecommunications industry. We regard this as very positive.
