Eindhoven University of Technology will lead the development of the 6G network

July 4, 2019

A European team of researchers, led by the research group of Prof. Bart Smolders of the department of Electrical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology, will develop wireless technology for future 6G networks. A subsidy of 4 million Euros has been granted for this from the European Marie-Curie subsidy program Horizon 2020. The 6G network will be a factor of 100 faster than the 5G network, which allows autonomous driving to be further perfected for instance.

With this project Europe is able to take the lead in an early stage developing basic technology for 6G. Within the European research project MyWave three top universities, Swedish Chalmers, German KIT Karlsruhe and Eindhoven University of Technology work together with companies such as Ericsson and NXP.
