Dr. Joan A. Ruiz-de-Azua, a researcher of the 6GSatNet project, has intervened in the SCSS workshop within the 14th International Conference on ICT Convergence, celebrated in Jeju Island (Korea) from 11 to 13 October. He conducted a keynote speaking titled “Towards 6G Non-Terrestrial Networks – A Perspective from the Internet of Things Use-Cases” to explain the evolution of satellite systems and their relevant role in achieving ubiquitous service, seamless coverage, and servicing ultra-high density areas.
Researchers from the 6GSatNet project have participated in the last edition of the International Astronautical Congress (IAC), celebrated in Baku (Azerbaijan) from 2 to 6 October. They presented some of the project’s results, generating a significant impact and exciting topics to discuss.
As a part of the 6GSatNet project, on October 26, the i2CAT Foundation will host the workshop “Interplanetary Internet of Things: Protocols, Routing and Simulation”, by researcher and professor Juan Fraire. This workshop delves into the Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN) architecture and the Bundle Protocol (BP), highlighting their roles as the backbone for a store-carry-and-forward networking framework for the Space Internet.

Tenders for the 6G TWINROAD project will be opened between November 18 and 23, aimed at creating digital twins for connected and autonomous mobility (CAM) on roads based on 6G technologies.
The call is addressed to companies, SMEs and universities that want to participate in the project.
Likewise, in the coming months, the opening of tenders for the projects 6G OpenVerso-Holo, 6G SatNet, OPEN 6G, 6G OPENVERSO-Net and 6G ENABLERS- DLT for 6G: Smart Marketplace is expected.
6G SatNet-GS at the Abu Dhabi 6G Summit 2022
On November 3-4, Moha Mosahebfard (i2CAT) will present the “Towards Quantum-Enabled 6G Slicing” poster, linked to the 6GSatNet-GS project, at the 6G Summit in Abu Dhabi (UAE).
Funded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation and the European Union-NextGenerationEU within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan of the Government of Spain.
Within the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan for research and innovation projects in the deployment of advanced 5G and 6G technologies, framed within the UNICO I+D 6G programme, i2CAT has been awarded 19 research projects and a complementary activity for a total amount of about € 16,5 million to be executed in 36 months, starting in January 2022.
The projects are grouped into 6 coordinated projects plus an action to support the recruitment of talent. All projects are led by i2CAT, which will execute 30% of the budget and subcontract the remaining 70% to large companies, SMEs and research organizations through public procurement procedures.
One of the objectives of these grants is to increase the leadership of public research groups in 5G, being a benchmark in the technological development of advanced 5G and 6G. For this reason, part of the aid will be dedicated to promoting the promotion and attraction of talent in the field of Telecommunications Engineering studies, with a particular emphasis on gender equality and the international arena.
The Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan serves as a framework for different programs and actions that will facilitate the universalization of access to ultra-fast broadband throughout the territory and accelerate the deployment of 5G. This initiative is part of the UNICO I+D 6G Program.

In this White Paper, we introduce i2CAT’s view on the future 6G system and we highlight the key technical areas where i2CAT will focus its 6G R&D efforts in the upcoming years.
We also describe a set of key R&D assets that will help us maximize the impact of our 6G research.
