Project Objectives

The main objective of METIS is to lay the foundation for, and to generate a European consensus on the future global mobile and wireless communications system. METIS will provide valuable and timely contributions to pre-standardisation and regulation processes, and ensure European leadership in mobile and wireless communications.

The overall technical objective of the METIS project is to develop a concept for the future mobile and wireless communications system that supports the connected information society by combining the results of the following technical objectives.

METIS will provide fundamentally new solutions which fit the needs beyond 2020. Research will be conducted on network topologies, radio links, multi-node, and spectrum usage techniques. Horizontal topics will be used to integrate the research results into a system concept that provides the necessary flexibility, versatility and scalability at a low cost.
