5G & IoT test beds and trials series: BRE Watford 17/11/16

On 17/11/16, the sixth and final event of 2016 for the 5G and IoT UK test beds and trials partners took place at BRE Watford, kindly hosted by Martin Ganley and chaired by Stuart Revell. These events aim to bring together members of the community to present and share research updates from the cutting edge, as well as to discuss and define community priorities and work plans for 2017 (this time focusing on knowledge exchange and common approaches, and standardisation). Delegates also enjoyed a tour of the BRE Innovation Park, and were given a summary report on the previous ETSI transport event on the 8th November.
