6G INNOVATION

6G Futures makes substantial contributions to innovation through prototyping, industry engagement, startups and standards contributions.

6G CO-CREATION

We have a long and proven track record of co-creation with industry: the public is only now beginning to see first-hand the enormous potential of 5G networks. We are growing our industrial and vertical collaborations for a successful 6G design.

6G STANDARDS

Both founding teams have a world-class track-record in contributing hands-on to global standards. We continue contributing to ETSI, IEEE, IETF and 3GPP standards.

6G POLICY

We have contributed to important national and international policy debates, and are continue doing so in the context of 6G. We contribute to Ofcom and UK national policy debates.

SELF-SYNTHESIZING NETWORKS

Neuromorphic Compute

This research line focuses on pioneering elements of this novel and exciting technology family. We are working on novel Spike Neural Networking (SNN) AI algorithms, with the aim to lower energy consumption of AI by orders of magnitude.

Quantum Internet

This line of research focuses on the exciting opportunites which quantum offers, both for compute as well as network security.

Self-Synthesizing Networks

This line of research explores the exciting opportunities AI offers in designing mobile networking architectures and protocols.
