The UK Spectrum Policy Forum (SPF) and DCMS are supporting a series of University-run workshops to showcase the current research projects having the best potential to address 6G wireless research priorities. Bristol, Surrey and Strathclyde have been selected to run the workshops but the intention is for these workshops to be a platform for all UK universities having relevant wireless research. Each hosting University has been entrusted by the SPF and DCMS to identify outstanding research projects from other Universities to showcase at their workshops. The output from this series of workshops will be a White Paper for the UK SPF to present to government that validates the research projects as relevant to UK 6G research priorities, identifies gaps, suggests opportunities for collaboration, looks at the adequacy of research funding streams and flag potential implications for 6G spectrum policy.
