Funding for 6G Advancements

According to the official release, Ericsson Antenna Technology Germany will lead the project's development at the Rosenheim R&D site in Germany. This initiative is part of the European Union's Important Project of Common European Interest on Microelectronics and Communication Technologies (IPCEI-ME/CT) program, which was jointly prepared by 14 EU member states. The program aims to provide up to EUR 8.1 billion in public funding to support research and development projects throughout the microelectronics and communication technology ecosystem.

Ericsson said it is one of 56 companies participating in 68 projects under IPCEI-ME/CT. These projects aim to drive digital and green transformations by developing microelectronics and communication solutions, as well as energy-efficient electronic systems and manufacturing methods.
