6G Flagship – The Finnish 6G Flagship is a vigorous research and co-creation ecosystem for 5G adoption and 6G innovation led by the University of Oulu and appointed by the Academy of Finland, a governmental funding agency for high-quality scientific research. The total budget for the 8-year Flagship program is 251 M€. The overarching goals of 6G Flagship are to support industry in finalization of 5G, develop the fundamental technology needed to enable 6G and to speed up digitalization in society.

IEEE 802.15 WPAN™
Task Group 3d 100 Gbit/s Wireless (TG 3d (100G)) includes the Terahertz Interest Group (IGthz)
Thomas Kürner (TUBS) chairs both groups.

Micromachined terahertz systems (H2020: end date Jan-2018)
This H2020 project envisions the wide-spread use of low-cost THz technology in society, enabled by micro-machined heterogeneous integration platform, which provides an unprecedented way to highly-integrated, volume-manufacturable, reliable, re-configurable, cost- and energy-efficient sub-millimetre-wave and terahertz (THz) systems.

Innovative ultra-BROadband ubiquitous Wireless communications through terahertz transceivers (H2020: end date Jun-2018)
iBROW is a Horizon 2020 project to develop a novel, energy-efficient and compact ultra-broadband short-range wireless communication transceiver technology, seamlessly interfaced with optical fibre networks and capable of addressing envisaged future network needs. iBROW includes several TERAPOD partners (TU Braunschweig, Vivid, University of Glasgow and INESC).

Traveling Wave Tube based W-band Wireless Networks with High Data Rate, Distribution, Spectrum and Energy Efficiency (H2020: end date Dec-2017)
The objective of the TWEETHER project is to set a milestone in the millimetre wave technology with the realisation of the first W-band (92-95 GHz) wireless system for distribution of high capacity everywhere. Such a system, combined with the development of beyond state-of-the-art affordable millimetre wave devices, will overcome the economical obstacle that causes the digital divide and pave the way towards the full deployment of small cells.

What to do With the Wi-Fi Wild West (H2020: end date Dec-2017)
Wi-5 proposes an architecture based on an integrated and coordinated set of smart solutions. The overall approach includes definition of the use cases and requirements; consideration of which subsystems and protocols are needed and readily available and identification of which parts of the solution are missing and then to build the complete solution for the Wi-Fi network and test and validate the integrated system in an operational network.

DFG SPP 1655
Wireless 100 Gb/s and beyond (German DFG funded project; end date 31-May-2018)
A network of German researchers to coordinate activity on wireless ultra-high data rate communication for mobile internet access to 100 Gb/s and beyond.
