Project description
FUWIRI is a nation-wide high-impact research, innovation and collaboration infrastructure in the area of future wireless technologies, jointly hosted by University of Oulu, Tampere University, Aalto University and VTT, while being tightly connected also to the 6G Flagship. The infrastructure facilitates experimental research related to the future radio and computer network technologies and applications, including research and innovation activities for developing new hardware, algorithms, software and applications. Also radio-based positioning and radio-based sensing solutions are associated technology developments that are strongly present. This FUWIRI-6G proposal creates extended research capabilities for the long-term 6G/sub-THz research, facilitating the fundamental propagation and channel measurements, circuit and antenna technology research, and over-the-air (OTA) experimentation at beyond 100 GHz bands.
