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.

  • 4 May: Nikolaos gave a Public Talk at the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) to CTTC researchers of diverse research interests and to the undergraduate students of UPC Campus del Baix Llobregat. His talk was titled "Caching Techniques for the Future Cellular RAN" and introduced in simple terms the technology of caching to the attendants. Subsequently, he discussed the benefits of the application of caching techniques to 5G cellular networks, which has gained prominence recently, and presented his work from his recent journal publication on the topic. Here is the powerpoint.

  • 10 May: Amin, Giovanni and Trinh went to the International Festival of Science (Vetenskapsfestivalen): with hundreds of activities and about 70,000 visits, it is one of Europe’s leading popular science events and the only one of its kind in Sweden. The Science Festival aims at communicating science to schools and the general public in an easily accessible and stimulating way, as well as providing a meeting place for the research community. The goal is to promote a positive attitude to science and research, and to encourage higher studies. Amin, Giovanni and Trinh attended the most important event in the opening day of the public programme, i.e. the Science Communication Forum on May 10. The programme is available here. The Science Communication Forum focused on the public’s understanding of science and why people often embrace beliefs that are sharply at odds with the scientific evidence. Pictures are available here, and a short video of the opening words can be found here.

  • 20 May: Panagiotis did another Public Talk under the form of a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activity to middle school students in Athens. He presented the background and history of wireless and 5G technologies, and also introduced the project and its goals. The 11 to 14 years old boys and girls had the opportunity to understand how a cellphone could access and send data trough wireless networks, and were explained what a European project was, and how it worked.
