Event Details

The aim of this competition is to develop new and novel applications and services that can be ready for 5G, in collaboration with South Korean partners.

The successful UK applicant will be required to test solutions in a real-life environment (rather than a lab environment). The test environment will be provided by South Korean partners and the technical architecture provided is a hybrid 4G/5G network, but any solution should be designed for a 5G future.

The funded project will test the live deployment of Infotainment mobile services. The testbed offered is a subway environment, initially across the Seoul subway system, but potentially extendable to other forms of transport, and travelling at greater speeds.


Potential projects might test:

  • Augmented Reality (AR) experiences in busy public spaces, giving tourists and commuters a dramatic new insight to the city and the way in which they experience it.
  • Optimisation of traffic management systems, to better manage commuter flows, reduce overcrowding, improve safety and better protect the environment.
  • Providing uninterrupted infotainment services for commuters such as interactive content, video streaming and gaming, with more reliable and faster services across the subway network.


The UK and Korean Governments are offering £1.2 million grant funding each (total grant funding of £2.4 million) to support organisations in their respective countries to participate in the collaboration.


One or more organisations (as a consortium, with one lead partner) from the UK will be awarded the £1.2 million DCMS capital grant funding to deliver the Project finishing no later than 31st March 2021.
