Research on 6G mobile about to start in Finnish university

A university in Finland has started research on 6G mobile networks – before 5G networks have even started commercial operation – and it is seeking PhD students

The University of Oulu, close to the Arctic Circle, has started the programme, called 6Genesis, under a programme being led by the Academy of Finland.

The whole programme will spend €25 million this year and a similar sum in 2019.

“The programme will provide intelligent digital applications and will develop the fundamental 6G competence needed for smart societies,” said the university in a statement.

“Our future society will be increasingly digitised, hyper-connected and globally data-driven. Near-instant wireless connectivity will be the key technical driver for realising this. [The] programme’s impact goals are to ensure wireless expertise for the industry and to enable early adaption of smart society technologies.”
