As a part of the research program "Digital. Sovereign.Connected.", the BMBF launched the funding measure "6G industrial projects for research into holistic systems and sub-technologies for 6th generation mobile communications". The aim of the research measure is to strengthen Germany’s and Europe’s digital and technological sovereignty by developing and helping to shape 6G at an early stage. In order to be a major player in the global market for this key technology with innovative and internationally competitive products, Germany and Europe must play a key role in shaping 6G.
The 6G initiative includes four 6G research hubs and the umbrella project “6G Platform”. These alliances of outstanding research institutes and universities are intended to generate innovations for the communications technologies of the future.
