The white paper covers related to 6G research from a technical, societal, policy and business perspective with the aim of providing a vision for future networks and services.

It explains how 6G is expected to play a key role in the evolution of the society towards the 2030’s, as the convergence between the digital, physical and personal worlds will increasingly become a reality.

Furthermore, 6G will support the European Green Deal's objective of reaching climate neutrality for Europe by 2050. This and other objectives of 6G will also greatly contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
6G will include intelligent connected management and control functions, programmability, integrated sensing and communication, reduction of energy footprint, trustworthy infrastructure, scalability and affordability.

The development of Europe-based 6G infrastructures, solutions and services will be of key importance to secure European strategic autonomy in critical technologies and systems.
The paper presents possible opportunities and obstacles related to 6G as well as a series of recommendations for policy makers and businesses.
