Nordic Research Collaboration in Wireless ICT

VINNOVA, TEKES and the Norwegian Research Council invest more than 75 Million SEK in Nordic cooperation within research on wireless communication systems. Joint Nordic ICT projects develop the mobile systems for the future, printed electronics, Radio-frequency identification (RFID) and smart homes.
 Nordic Research Collaboration in Wireless ICT
The three national research and innovation financiers in Norway, Sweden and Finland launched a new technology programme, NORDITE, in 2005.

– NORDITE enhances Nordic research cooperation within research fields of great commercial potential, says Jonas Wallberg from VINNOVA.

The closing date for the second NORDITE call was 5 June 2007. The programme received 14 proposals. The final decision was made late November, and the following 6 projects were selected:

MEMS based reconfigurable RF systems for software radio, wireless sensors, and MMID technology

Wireless interference-limited high-throughput access technologies

Cross-layer optimization in Short-Range Wireless Sensor Networks, part II

Printed RFID and Printed Wireless Sensor Solutions

Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks for measurement and control

RF MEMS Steerable Antennas for Automotive Radar and Future Wireless Applications

The purpose of the NORDITE programme is to assist Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish research institutes and companies to further develop and demonstrate their technical expertise in technology areas like SW radio, wireless sensors, short-range wireless networks and RFID or MEMS utilizing RF technology.
