Delegates of the Mobile World Congress discover the park
The Mobile World Congress 2019 closed its doors yesterday in Barcelona with a new record of participation (109,000 visitors). It was focussed this year on the 5G technology and among all the initiatives presented in that field, let us highlight the joint initiative of Catalonia and the French cross-border region of Occitania, to prepare the application of the 5G Mediterranean corridor to the 5G European corridors that the European Union is setting up as priority projects.

The corridor would extend in Catalonia along the AP-7 motorway that runs through the Barcelona Synchrotron Park and beyond in France, so the motorway will be connected to 5G infrastructures and will allow driverless cars to circulate, thus being a unique test bed for the car of the future.

MWC 2019 has been an opportunity for the Barcelona Synchrotron Park to welcome in the synchrotron a delegation of 30 participants from different countries (Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Canada, Brazil) that came thanks to ACCIÓ, the Catalan government agency that promotes, among other things, the attractiveness of Catalonia abroad. They could discover the reality of the park and visit its icon, the Alba synchrotron, the largest research facility in south-western Europe that received last year 1,800 researchers from all over the world to carry out their investigations.
