The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has selected four hubs nationwide to conduct research into 6G, the technology of the future. Starting in August 2021, the researchers involved in the project will push ahead with research on 6G, the next generation of mobile communications. Each 6G research hub is being set up under the coordination of the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (Open6GHub), the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, HHI (6G-RIC), Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen (6GEM), Technische Universität Dresden, and the Technical University of Munich (6G-Life).

Researchers from Ruhr University Bochum are involved in the “6G research hub for ppen, efficient and secure mobile communications systems (6GEM)”, striving to develop a holistic 6G system – from hardware to software – that provides a flexible network infrastructure. The aim is to guarantee resilient, adaptive systems with extremely low latency and maximum reliability. These emerging technologies will be using digital twins to enable promising future applications such as safe road transport, port logistics, intralogistics, rescue robotics and the digital operating theatre.

Professor Aydin Sezgin is Speaker of Ruhr University Bochum for the project.

Cooperation Partners

At Ruhr University Bochum, researchers from the faculties of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (Professor Aydin Sezgin, Professor Ilona Rolfes, Professort Nils Pohl, Professor Thomas Musch) and Computer Science (Professor Eike Kiltz, Professor Tim Güneysu) are involved in the project.
