Earlier this week, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with Ericsson, organized an inspiring and interactive Tech Table event, Tech for Good by Ericsson at the 5G Hub, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven.
The participants were all very warmly welcomed by Everth Flores, Managing Director of Ericsson NL, followed by a short word by H.E Ambassador of Sweden Mr. Johannes Oljelund. The event delved into the important role of 5G in digital transformation, showcasing how technical solutions can help improve sustainability and promote the green transition. Other highlights included insights into Ericsson’s award-winning 5G smart factories by Iris Hertsenberg, Program Board Manager at the 5G Hub, and Dassault Systèmes’ groundbreaking work on virtual twins by Robert Sjölund, Sales Representative at DELMIA. Last but not least, we explored Social XR through an exciting presentation by Hans Stokking, Senior Science Integrator at TNO, which also showed how it provides new possibilities to bring people closer together.
Following the insightful presentations, participants had the opportunity to engage in hands-on demos at the 5G hub with support from Iris Hertsenberg and Edwin Dijkstra, Solution Architect at the 5G Hub, including driving a remote-controlled surveillance car and trying out full-scale XR communication.
We would like to thank all the speakers who provided valuable insights into this important and topical field and Ericsson for hosting such an engaging and eventful event. Special thanks to Patrick Blankers, Policy Director Sustainability at Ericsson, for organizing the event and to all participants for their contribution to making a very successful event.
