With 27,000 students, 1,400 research students, and 3,500 employees, Linköping University (LIU) is Sweden’s fifth largest university. LIU is strongly committed to education and research in an international competitive context. Linköping University comprises four faculties: Arts and sciences, Educational science, Medicine, and the Institute of Technology, the latter comprising almost half of total resources and funding. From its inception, LIU has focused on fostering a commitment to research and education in cross-disciplinary perspectives, and internationally competitive contexts, with research often being organised in thematic, inter-disciplinary domains within which, basic research is undertaken. The faculty maintains co-operative ties with more than ninety universities in twenty-two countries. Scientific relevance and societal resourcefulness are the dual criteria set forth for initiating and developing the university’s strategic directives.
LIU will contribute mainly to WP4 (PHY/MAC algorithm development, specifically coding and retransmission techniques for analog data) and to WP5 (integration and verification). LIU will also lead the dissemination work package (WP6).
LIU, and the communication systems division in the EE (ISY) department in particular, has strong expertise in all aspects related to the design and optimization of wireless links and networks. The division participated in another European research project related to wireless transmission, FP7/ICT SENDORA.
