Millimeter-wave Networking and Sensing for Beyond 5G, with Joerg Widmer as Principal Investigator, is the base of this project funded by European Union (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2019 / Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks), from November, 2019 to October, 2023 (Madrid Time)
We interview one of the members of our Alumni Network, Dr. Hany Assasa. Hany obtained his PhD from IMDEA Networks and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid back in July and he is still at our institute as a Post Doc Researcher. He and Dr. Joerg Widmer have just received funding by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of the U.S. Department of Commerce to work on a new simulator for the next generation mmWave standards.
Professor Dr. Ralf Steinmetz, President of IMDEA Networks’ Board of Trustees and Full Professor at the Multimedia Communications Lab (KOM) of the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany), has been appointed member of the prestigious Academy of Europe. This appointment recognizes Steinmetz’s role as one of the world leaders in the research and development of adaptive seamless multimedia communications.
We interview one of the members of our Alumni Network, Dr. Paul Patras, during his recent visit to IMDEA Networks. Paul obtained his PhD from IMDEA Networks and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid back in March 2011 and is now an Associate Professor in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. This makes him the first member of our Alumni Network to achieve tenure.
We interview one of the members of our Alumni Network, Dr. Elli Zavou, during her recent visit to IMDEA Networks. Elli obtained her PhD from IMDEA Networks and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid back in September 2016 and is now a Software Developer at StratioBD in Madrid.

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) together with Telefónica and IMDEA Networks have demonstrated brand-new 5G use cases for Industry 4.0 and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC) 2019 event held in Valencia, Spain, June 17-21.
Innovalia, a strategic alliance of seven companies created in 2000 with the objective of consolidating business activities and development on three fundamental pillars: innovation, technology, and internationalization, is to join the 5TONIC co-creation laboratory in Madrid as a new collaborator.
The radio frequency spectrum, the basis for wireless telecommunications, is a finite resource that needs to be managed effectively to satisfy the demands posed by the exponential growth in wireless internet access. IMDEA Networks researchers have developed a novel communications architecture for future ultrafast wireless networks that promises to achieve data rates previously only possible with optical fiber.
