5Gwireless is a multi-partner European Training Network (ETN) project, within the framework of the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITNs).

5Gwireless was launched in January 2015, is focused on studying and designing Innovative Architectures, Wireless Technologies and Tools for High Capacity and Sustainable 5G Ultra-Dense Cellular Networks.


5Gwireless is a fully-integrated and multi-disciplinary network of 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) working in 10 research institutions distributed in 6 European countries. The consortium is formed by 4 Universities, 1 Research Center and 5 Private Companies.

5Gwireless offers a cross-sectoral environment to 15 ESRs, in order to shape their long-term research view and to allow them to get fundamental methodological tools on various research fields and novel concepts, such as, cell-less/device-centric architectures, ultra-dense networks and mmW communications.
