The European Laboratory of Wireless Communications for the Future Internet addresses two separate goals: on one hand it aims at supporting industries, providing an Open Platform for Innovation; on the other it fosters a new generation of scientists willing to perform research through both theoretical and experimental approaches, under the motto "Fundamental Research Through Experimentation".
Industries can find information on the EuWIn Open Platform for Innovation concept here.
The EuWin facilities are distributed over three sites: at CTTC in Barcelona (Spain), at the University of Bologna (Italy) and at the Eurecom institute in Sophia-Antipolis (France). They are open for access by any scientist worldwide. EuWin is funded by EC through FP7 / the NoE in wireless communications Newcom#, for the first three years of its activity, till October 2015.
EuWin addresses topics and techniques related to the systems and networks that will drive the evolution of wireless communications in the years to come: LTE/4G, the Internet of Things, GNSS. Digital signal processing, radio access and network protocol aspects, are studied through the available lab facilities.
The scope of EuWIn is to achieve an integrated laboratory able to address under a common environment the various topics of wireless communication technologies for the future Internet.
The laboratory aims at providing a context useful both for experimental research, and as a support to industry innovation.
From the former viewpoint, the laboratory activities aim at creating a new generation of researchers in wireless communications believing in the motto "Fundamental Research Through Experimentation". From the latter, EuWIn makes its facilities available to industries, both large and SMEs, providing an Open Platform for Innovation...
As a general policy, EuWIn will be as open as possible, given the constraints in terms of physical and human resources. Institutions willing to join EuWIn or visit the sites should contact us through the website pages Join and Visits.
