Make your passion for innovation a reality by becoming an ambassador for the West Midlands by exploring how 5G is set to revolutionise our lives.

What is 5G in 5 Days?

5G in 5 Days is an exciting opportunity to work with industry experts, gain invaluable experience, increase your skills and knowledge, and raise your profile in the region.

We are providing 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.

If successful you will feature in and help to create a social media series to educate the wider community on 5G technology and its potential. Your participation will be filmed and you will create video diaries that will help the public learn about 5G as you do.

You will attend the opening and have exclusive access to the brand new 5PRING innovation centres. You will 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.

  • Do you want to explore 5G and how it is changing the way we use devices, connectivity and data?  By opening up a world of exciting possibilities across business, transport, healthcare and manufacturing, to name a few, 5G will impact our day to day lives.
