Kick off meeting

DESIRE6G kicks off in Madrid!

On the 2nd and 3rd of February 2023, participants from 14 European institutions met in Leganés at the Universidad Carlos III to launch a new research project called DESIRE6G. The project’s goal is to design, develop, and demonstrate a new wireless communication system that will provide faster, more reliable, and more energy-efficient connectivity than current 5G systems.

Funded by the European Commission’s Horizon Europe program, under the Smart Networks and Service Joint Undertaking, DESIRE6G will receive almost €6 million to support its research and development activities for three years. The project’s participants include 14 partners from 11 countries, including universities, research institutions, and technology companies such as SMEs, a large corporation and a telecom provider.

The kick-off meeting was an opportunity for the partners to get to know each other and discuss the project’s goals, challenges, and opportunities. During the two-day meeting, the partners shared their expertise and ideas and developed a shared vision for the project.

DESIRE6G will design and develop a new 6G wireless communication system that has the potential to create a significant impact on the wireless communication market, leading to new applications and services that will improve people’s lives.

Mobile networks have been getting faster and better over time, but the newest 5G networks may not be able to support some of the newest and most critical applications that need super-fast response times. To solve this problem, a research project called DESIRE6G is working to create a new system for controlling and managing the network that can handle these demanding applications.

The new system will use artificial intelligence and will be able to make decisions on its own to keep the network running smoothly. It will also be able to handle different types of data and services, like virtual reality and augmented reality, with less energy consumption and more security.

The new system will be tested in two different locations using virtual reality, augmented reality, and digital twin applications to make sure it works properly. Overall, this research will help make mobile networks more reliable and efficient for all kinds of applications.

Stay tuned for more updates on DESIRE6G as the project progresses!
