While 5G networks has an established roadmap towards technology validation, specifications and tests by industry, outstanding new scientific opportunities are blooming in the field of networking research, with the objective of bringing little explored technologies and system concepts closer to exploitation. The challenge is to support European scientific excellence notably in the DSP domain, and to bring the most promising long term research coming from the labs closer to fruition. This includes perspectives for the full exploitation of the spectrum potential, notably above 90Ghz, with new waves of technologies and knowledge, bringing wireless systems to the speed of optical technologies, and for new applications. It includes interaction with photonic systems as well as new cooperation networking and protocols, notably in the mobility context.
Development and exploitation of academic research through transfer and innovation towards industry with a particular focus on SMEs is an integral part of the challenge.Scope:
Research and Innovation Actions
Proposals may cover one or more of the themes identified below.
The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 2 and 3 million would allow this area to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.Expected Impact:
