From the secrets of the universe to the promise of tomorrow: Kari Leppänen maps the world around him in 6G
Many of us gaze at the stars and think, Wouldn’t it be fun to be an astronomer? Find out the secrets of the universe, life? But not many of us have the wherewithal to become astronomers, though. Professor of Practice Kari Leppänen at 6G Flagship does. For a while, he pursued a career in radio astronomy. “I know exactly how the recent image of the black hole was created."

Digital health technology is one of the most important research themes at the University of Oulu. The DigiHealth project also takes researchers to the corridors of Oulu University Hospital.
Researchers of the Microelectronics Research Unit (MIC) at the University of Oulu have demonstrated in collaboration with Tampere University that carbon nanotubes can be used to control the direction of neural cells growth.
Productivity, production quality and reaction speed are key challenges in industry. Reboot IoT Factory develops digital solutions for these challenges, with their functionality tested in a genuine factory environment. Business Finland has granted further funding for expanding the operating model.
Researchers of the Optoelectronics and Measurement Techniques Unit (OPEM) at the University of Oulu have invented a new method of producing ultra-sensitive hyper-spectral photodetectors. At the heart of the discovery are colloidal quantum dots, developed together with the researchers at the University of Toronto, Canada. Quantum dots are tiny particles of 15-150 atoms of semiconducting material that have extraordinary optical and electrical properties due to quantum mechanics phenomena. By controlling the size of the dots, the researchers are able to finetune how they react to different light colors (light wavelengths), especially those invisible for the human eye, namely the infrared spectrum.
Connecting the unconnected is a driving force for Dr. Sudhir Dixit, a docent of the University of Oulu, who brings his long industry experience especially from Nokia and HP, but also from several startups, societies and foundations, to the 6G Flagship program. Dixit’s wide global experience and visions help in gently shaking up the research community, which often operates in a comfortable vacuum. Dixit shared his views on global connectivity in Palo Alto, at the heart of the Silicon Valley, where he has worked for the last 12 years.
The Equality and Diversity Committee of the University of Oulu has given the 2019 Equality and Diversity Award to former doctoral researcher Vasiliki Mylonopoulou and Management Assistant Pia Askonen.
A major project PRIORITY will research, develop and trial critical communication solutions for authorities and remote businesses. A key target will be to complement existing mission critical voice and messaging services with broadband data capability, using commercial 4G and 5G wireless networks.
A mathematician by training, Pekka Kyösti is enjoying what he calls taking “a bit of an outsider look” at the technologies of future mobile telecommunications.
-Even as I have worked with engineers throughout my career, I’ve always looked at things from a different perspective than engineers
6G Flagship research program has published world’s first 6G white paper which opens the floor for defining the 2030 wireless era.
Keysight Technologies, a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced today that the company has joined the multi-party 6G Flagship Program – supported by the Academy of Finland and led by the University of Oulu, Finland – as a co-creator to advance wireless communications research beyond 5G.
The Scientific Advisory Board of the 6G Flagship programme convened for the first time in beautiful Lapland in the very first 6G Summit at the top of Levi ski resort. The director of 6G Flagship at the University of Oulu, Professor Matti Latva-aho, extended his gratitude to all the conference attendants as well as to the Board, patrons and sponsors. The Summit was all about considering the future world beyond 5G and towards 6G. We decided to sit down with the Scientific Advisory Board and have a conversation on what the future holds.
New methods for the research and treatment of joint cartilage damage are being developed at the University of Oulu. So far, the results of the extensive international projects MIRACLE and RESTORE are promising.
The SaT5G project today announced the operation of a number of successful demonstrations of 5G over satellite at the 2019 European Conference on Networks and Communications in Valencia, Spain. The project vision is to develop a cost-effective plug-and-play satcom solution for 5G to enable mobile operators and network vendors to accelerate 5G deployment across all geographies and multiple use cases whilst at the same time creating new and growing market opportunities for satcom industry stakeholders.
Professor Heli Jantunen of the University of Oulu is the winner of the Finnish Science Award 2019. The award is granted by the Ministry of Education and Culture based on a proposal of the Academy of Finland. It was presented by Minister of Science and Culture Annika Saarikko during the Science Forum.
Professor Tarik Taleb is all about networks. Not in the social mingling, here-is-my-business-card-we-should-do-lunch sense, although he is no doubt proficient in that, too. Taleb runs the MOSA!C Lab in Aalto University and, according to him, everything the lab does is related to connectivity. Taleb has been involved with the 6G Flagship from the start and is working on the first white paper on the subject with professor Matti Latva-aho and the team. Taleb is bridging the research collaboration between Aalto University and the University of Oulu and splits his time between the two universities.
Steven LaValle, Mehdi Bennis and Guido Giunti received awards.
