With their application “6GEM open – efficient – secure – safe”, the RWTH Aachen University, the Ruhr-University Bochum, the Dortmund University of Technology and the University of Duisburg-Essen were successful in a call for proposals issued by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The four universities will work together with four non-university research institutions on future communication technologies in 6G mobile communications from August 1, 2021. Co-applicants were the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics, the Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems, the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Technology and the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy.

The 6GEM consortium combines scientific excellence and mobile communications expertise at the network, material, component/microchip and module levels in North Rhine-Westphalia. Experience in their implementation and worldwide networking is also available. A holistic approach is being pursued, from production and logistics to people with their needs for self-determination, privacy and security in times of climate change.
