Final Report Summary - MULTIWAVES (Multiband Electronically Reconfigurable Microwave Devices and Antennas for a New Generation of Wireless Systems)

To expand the capacity of the participating institutions to progress in research, to communicate across disciplines, and to create a critical mass of researchers and knowledge needed for important scientific breakthroughs.

- A cohesive research- and education-oriented network in the interdisciplinary fields of advanced technologies, artificial EM materials, complex geometries, and application-oriented design.
- A coordinated multiannual joint research programme between European and non-European research institutions.

Research challenge:
Wireless communications are omnipresent, yet frequencies are scarce.

Research approach:
Exploit complementarities and synergies between various technologies: conventional, ferroelectric, superconducting, fractal, metamaterial.

Expected results:
Three main types of microwave devices redesigned for small size, improved functionality and multiband operation: filters, antennas, and couplers and shifters.

Impact on ERA:
- Transfer of specific knowledge into Europe
- Reduction of fragmentation of research
- Inter- and intra-country cooperation
- Systematic and frequent reformulation of the problems
- Cohesive experimental and theoretical approach

Impact on the society as large:
- Experience of excellence
- Reward for complementarity
- Potential creation of new employments
- Inter-cultural exchange
- Gender balance
