InterDigital and the University of Surrey Formalize 6G Research Partnership
InterDigital, Inc. (Nasdaq: IDCC), a mobile and video technology
research and development company, and the 6G Innovation Centre
(6GIC) at the University of Surrey have announced a bilateral
research partnership to develop 6G enabling technologies that may
impact future wireless standards. Specifically, InterDigital will
sponsor research and innovation at 6GIC in technologies such as
integrated sensing and communication and reconfigurable intelligent
surfaces (RIS), both expected to be important features of 6G.
InterDigital maintains a long heritage of technology innovation
and has made continuous contributions to the European wireless
research and standards ecosystem through the Horizon Europe 5G
public-private partnership program. Last year, InterDigital was
awarded funding to contribute to eight UK and EU-led 6G flagship
research programs defining the roadmap for 6G. The University of
Surrey’s 6GIC was launched in 2020 as a premier global research hub
dedicated to advanced telecommunications engineering that brings
together the physical and virtual worlds and explores new 6G
opportunities from the use of ambient information and ubiquitous
coverage. The 6G partnership will support joint dissemination of
research findings in pre-standards and research forums such as
ETSI, Innovate UK, and Horizon Europe partnership projects, and in
top tier peer review journals.
“Our new partnership with 6GIC reflects InterDigital’s
commitment to collaborate with leading universities and programs to
encourage innovative research outcomes and bolster the impact of
our innovation through wireless standards like ETSI and 3GPP,” said
Milind Kulkarni, VP and Head of Wireless Labs, InterDigital.
“Research collaborations like this both support UK strategies to
promote wireless innovation through standard essential patents and
leverages our unique expertise in areas like RIS and integrated
sensing and communication to drive the potential for 6G
“6GIC is thrilled to embark on a new partnership with
InterDigital,” said University of Surrey Professor Rahim Tafazolli
FREng, Head of the Institute for Communication System. “Innovation
is at the core of our DNA, and this great opportunity to
collaborate with InterDigital will allow us to ideate and develop
critical 6G technology features including integrated sensing and
communication and reconfigurable intelligent surfaces. This
important collaboration will further nurture and drive forward our
research and innovation strategy.
The multi-year research partnership between InterDigital and
6GIC was officially formalized at the 6GSymposium held at the
University of Surrey.
