6G Flagship participates in the first EC funded 6G project with leading European industry

The Hexa-X project has been awarded funding from the European Commission under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, a significant step toward bringing together key industry stakeholders in Europe to take the lead in advancing 6G. The stakeholders represent the full value-chain of future connectivity solutions ranging from network vendors, communication service providers, verticals, and technology providers, as well as the most prominent European communications research institutes.

The Hexa-X project starts on 1 January 2021, with a planned duration of 2.5 years. Nokia is the overall project lead for Hexa-X and Ericsson is technical lead, and they will work closely with a strong consortium of altogether 25 European partners.

The Hexa-X project aims to connect the physical, digital and human worlds, firmly anchored in future wireless technology and architectural research. Wireless technologies are critical for society and the economy today and their importance will continue to steadily increase with 5G and its evolution, enabling new ecosystems and services.
