Welcome to the SILIKA website!

SILIKA is a European funded Marie Curie project that started September 1, 2016, with partners from Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands. Its main purpose is to train 12 young researchers (PhD students) to become experts in key technologies for future mobile telecommunication systems. Throughout the training programme, the PhD students will each work on an individual research topic that is of high relevance for the successful development of the next generation mobile telecommunication system (5G). Each student will spend at least 18 months at an industrial partner. In this way, the outcome of the research will directly benefit the European industry while the young researchers gain experience in an industrial work environment. The contributions from each research topic will be combined in a 5G base-station demonstrator, which will be assembled and tested by the end of the project. More detailed information on the purpose and sructure of the project can be found under “About SILIKA” at the top of the page.
