The University of Granada is upgrading its wireless technology laboratory with a grant of 2 million euros

Unique Laboratory of Wireless Technologies (Smart Wireless Technologies Lab – SWTL) has received a project of two million euros to expand and improve the infrastructure of the University of Granada, and with another grant of another million euros, consolidated as a leading university in Europe in wireless communication 5G and 6G research.

The STWL laboratory is dedicated to the characterization and measurement of radiofrequency devices and radiative systems, focusing mainly on the millimeter band, where the future of research lies. Wireless communication. The UGR’s STWL is one of the most advanced in Spain, as it is capable of providing services to researchers from the university and other national and international research groups, as well as companies in the field who wish to test their prototypes.



With the investment received for the project, the Laboratory of the University of Granada is a European leader in terms of design, production and characterization of Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RIS). 5G Advanced and 6G.

The progress resulting from this strong investment will allow the University of Granada to provide a leading laboratory in design, which will act as a link and facilitating element for the creation of synergies between the two unique laboratories of the UGR. Unified Laboratory for Wireless Technologies and Nanoelectronics, Graphene and Two-Dimensional Materials. The combination of existing infrastructures and the resulting infrastructure will represent Europe’s leading infrastructure.

In terms of infrastructure improvements, impact is achieved at several levels. The first of them will allow them to benefit Eight lines of research 42 different participating researchers. In addition, national and international collaborations with the business sector and academia will increase. It will enable cross-collaborations by integrating researchers from different disciplines. Therefore, this infrastructure will impact various fields such as 5G and 6G communications (including Industry 4.0, smart cities, e-health), material science, RF devices, security, parallel computing, communication electronics and AI. Impact on our society. Lastly, the development plan will contribute to socio-economic impact as it will have contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
