Abstract: The imminent development of 5G networks will allow to reach a high level of connectivity and capacity through the deployment of different typologies of installations. In this scenario, monitoring of electromagnetic fields is fundamental to measure the field levels actually present in the real environment. The analysis of the measurements data on the territory can facilitate the assessment of the development conditions of the 5G systems in compliance with the exposure limits and in the presence of existing technologies. The EMF Project promoted by the Emilia-Romagna Region and financed by the Ministry of the Environment and the Protection of the Territory and the Sea is part of this context, in particular the project "Monitoring network for the control of electromagnetic fields". As part of this project, radiofrequency electromagnetic field measurements have been carried out on the regional territory in critical and non-critical sites; the data have been analysed in an aggregate way at regional, individual province and single city level, also taking into consideration the details relating to the specific environmental scenario.
