The seminar took place at The Great Northern and was conducted together with Skellefteå municipality with CIO Michael Carlberg Lax as contributing speaker. A little over seventy participants appeared and also the media were represented by local press and the radio P4 Västerbotten.

- It is clear that 5G is interesting for many, both young and old, says Karl Andersson, assistant professor of distributed computer systems and operations manager at the Center for Distance-spanning Technology.

- Skellefteå municipality is involved in the 5G area and it is looking good regarding several interesting initiatives going forward such as in healthcare, the future school, sustainable urban planning and smart energy systems, Karl continues.

- It is really nice to have such an inspiring CIO in the municipality, Karl concludes and refers to Michael Carlberg Lax's interesting talk.
