As a continuation of an effort started within the period 2010-2015, the ECC has identified within its strategic plan for the period 2015-2020 the need to further strengthen the collaboration with academia and research programs as such:
‘ECO should under the guidance of the ECC SG develop relations with universities and relevant scientific institutes that would be willing to do research in spectrum management, give advice to research institutes on issues to investigate or on specific research, explore relationships with European research programmes and be a focal point of research carried out within CEPT Administrations in order to:
- monitor upcoming developments and trends in radio;
- inform the research community about the spectrum and regulation environment’.
The purpose of this page is to provide up-to-date information about the initiatives and activities within this area during the period 2015-2020.
Historical remark from the period 2010 – 2015:
The ECO, following the task given in the ECC Strategic Plan in March 2010, established a number of contacts with research institutions. The focus was on five areas of research activity belonging to so called category 1, which is in the short term could influence the ECC work programme. This process has led to an increased and more direct involvement from academia in the ECC activities and in active ECC/ECO participation in research-focused workshops. Representatives from academic institutions are regularly taking part in the ECC meetings, for example PT FM44, PT SE24, PT SE43, SRD/MG, ECC PT1.
List of research institutions and projects having a contact with ECC can be found here.
