Cooperation between 5G.NRW and 6GEM Please provide a copyright notice

The 6G research hub for open, efficient, and secure mobile communications systems - 6GEM - has been estanblished with significant funding by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) based in wireless network research work by the universities of Aachen, Bochum, Dortmund, and Duisburg-Essen, research institutes of the Fraunhofer and Max Planck Societies located in NRW and the institutitues of the universities of Erlangen und Ilmenau.

In this 5G.NRWeek session, we would like to offer you an overview into the application and practice-oriented research of NRW-specific 6G research activities. You can expect an exciting program with contributions from the central 6GEM sites, deep insights into first research results and exposed 6G test sites established in NRW, whose goal is to demonstrate the added value of future 6G systems for societally and industrially highly relevant use cases.
