Finland and South Korea to collaborate on 6G

The new research project will develop a system architecture for 6G.

The University of Oulu in Finland and the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) in South Korea have announced a new partnership. The project aims to define a service-centric 6G system architecture, along with supporting mechanisms and algorithms that enable the autonomous management of the 6G system.

The collaboration, which is part of the existing 6G Bridge programme, will be funded by BusinessFinland and the South Korean Ministry of Science and ICT. The project will span for a total of three years, ending in December 2025.

The University of Oulu says the project is a continuation of existing collaborations with ETRI, which has been working with the university since 2018 when it became the first international partner to sign a memorandum of understanding with the 6G Flagship research project.
