TITLE: Broadcast and Multicast Communication Enablers for the Fifth- Generation of Wireless Systems (5G-Xcast)
FUNDING INSTITUTION: European Commission
START DATE: 01/06/2017
END DATE: 31/05/2019
PRINCIPAL RESEARCHER: David Gómez Barquero
DESCRIPTION: It is a new project of the 5GPPP’s second phase and involves researchers from Spain, Finland, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Hungary, Israel, Netherlands, Italy and Switzerland, being coordinated by the MCG of the hand of Dr. David Gómez Barquero. The 5G-Xcast is a twoyears’ project, that started in June 2017 and is funded with a budget of around 8 million euros. The main objective of the project is to design the point-to-point multicast and broadcast components of the 5G.
TITLE: Early stage colon tumour diagnosis by electromagneticf reflection (STuDER)
FUNDING INSTITUTION: The Hospital Universitario y Politécnico La Fe and Universitat Politècnica de València
START DATE: 20/10/2016
END DATE: 19/10/2017
PRINCIPAL RESEARCHER: Narcís Cardona Marcet
DESCRIPTION: This is a joint collaborative project with Hospital La Fe, jointly funded by both public institutions. This project is devoted to the investigation of the potential applications for early stage colon tumour detection and diagnosis based on the different electromagnetic properties of healthy and malignant colon tissues. The first trials of the project took place during Spring 2017.

TITLE: Wireless In-Body Environment (WIBEC)
FUNDING INSTITUTION: European Commission
START DATE: 01/01/2016
END DATE: 31/12/2019
PRINCIPAL RESEARCHER: Narcís Cardona Marcet
WEB: https://www.ntnu.edu/wibec
DESCRIPTION: This project is an Innovative Training Network that aims to train excellent researchers in the field of wireless communications inside the body. In particular, the two main application areas are Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCE) and pacemakers. WIBEC project will have a duration of 4 years during which 16 researchers will be trained in 8 European institutions, among them. WIBEC consortium is coordinated by Oslo University Hospital from Norway and is composed of 3 universities (Norges Tekninsk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet, Norway; Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain; and Technische Universität Dresden, Germany); 3 companies (Sorin CRM, France; Ovesco AG, Germany; and ValoTec, France); and 2 university hospitals (Hospital Universitario y Politécnico La Fe, Spain; and Oslo University Hospital, Norway).
TITLE: Mobile and wireless communications Enablers for Twenty-twenty (2020) Information Society-II (METIS-II)
FUNDING INSTITUTION: European Commission
START DATE: 01/07/2015
END DATE: 30/06/2017
PRINCIPAL RESEARCHER: Jose F. Monserrat del Río
WEB: https://5g-ppp.eu/metis-ii/
DESCRIPTION: METIS-II is a project with 23 partners cofunded in the European H2020 research programme with a budget of 8 M€. Ericsson is the project coordinator and Nokia Networks is the technical coordinator. Further partners are Alcatel Lucent, Deutsche Telekom, Huawei, iDate, Intel, ITRI, Janmedia Interactive, KTH, NTT DOCOMO, NYU, Orange, Samsung, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, University of Kaiserslautern, Universitat Politècnica de València and WINLAB. The main objective of METIS-II is the development of the necessary means to integrate the new technology, as well as the evolution of the already existing ones, in an efficient, scalable and versatile 5G radio system design.
TITLE: Tecnologias de radiodifusion digital extra-terrestres (E.T. Broadcast)
FUNDING INSTITUTION: Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad
START DATE: 01/01/2015
END DATE: 31/12/2017
PRINCIPAL RESEARCHER: David Gómez Barquero
DESCRIPTION: The main scientific objective of the E.T.Broadcast project is to investigate and validate new technological solutions for the next generation of standards of Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), which intend to redefine the DTT of the future allowing the efficient transmission of ultra-high definition (UHD) fixed services and high definition mobile services (HD) to mobile devices, especially tablets, using much less spectrum.
