Institute of Radiocommunications joined 6G Flagship Initiative

Institute of Radiocommunications representatives join the international 6GFlagship initiative set on defining 6G mobile networks.

6g-flagship-logo.png Researchers from the Institute of Radiocommunications of the Faculty of Computing and Telecommunications of PUT, prof. dr hab. inż. Hanna Bogucka and dr hab. inż. Adrian Kliks, have joined the international 6G Flagship initiative (https://www.oulu.fi/6gflagship/) aimed at research on next-generation mobile networks - 6G. The initiative gathers experts from various circles around the world, including scientists and representatives of business and industry, and aims to stimulate further technical development in the field of wireless communications. Currently, there is a multifaceted discussion on defining the vision of wireless communications in the year 2030. It will produce a series of over a dozen white papers presenting selected aspects of 6G mobile networks. The Polish scientists will participate in this initiative both as wireless telecommunication experts (authors of papers), and as editing assistants.
