METIS, Mobile and wireless communications Enablers for Twenty-twenty (2020) Information Society, is co-funded by the European Commission as an Integrated Project under the Seventh Framework Programme for research and development (FP7). The project is led by Ericsson and will provide an important platform for an early global consensus on fundamental questions connected to the development of the future mobile and wireless communications system, and pave the way for future standardization of 5G.
The project objective is to lay the foundation for a future mobile and wireless communications system for 2020 and beyond. METIS is a consortium of 29 partners coordinated by Ericsson. Other participants from Sweden are KTH and Chalmers. Approximately 80 persons will be dedicated full time to METIS during its 30-month duration. The strong consortium includes manufacturers, network telecommunications operators, academic institutions, automotive industry and a research centre.
