Act Legal Austria has assisted the BABEG Carinthian Agency for Investment Promotion and Public Shareholding in the legal structuring of its cooperation with mobile operator A1 for the opening of Austria’s first “5G Playground” at the Lakeside Science and Technology Park in the Carinthia region of Austria that is scheduled to open this September.
BABEG, which is owned jointly by Austria's Federal Government and the Carinthian Government, promotes projects in research, technology, innovation, and technical infrastructure in Carinthia. BABEG holds a 2/3 share in the Lakeside Science & Technology Park in Klagenfurt am Worthersee, in Carinthia. The Lakeside Park is a platform for the collaboration between companies and university institutes in the field of information and communication technologies.
The test laboratory, to be called “5G Playground Carinthia,” will provide a technological environment for the development of various applications, products, processes, and applications in connection with a new and super-fast mobile radio standard. The test environment will be available to research and educational institutions, SMEs, and start-ups to research or further develop products and applications.
Act Legal Austria’s team was led by Partner Martin Wiedenbauer.
