On 1st of September 2017 the European cooperative research project, EPIC “Enabling Practical Wireless Tb/s Communications with Next Generation Channel Coding” has officially started. EPIC aims to develop a new generation of Forward-Error-Correction (FEC) codes in a manner that will serve as a fundamental enabler of practicable beyond 5G wireless Tb/s solutions and also to develop and utilize a disruptive FEC design allowing to advance state-of-the-art FEC schemes and to obtain the principal channel codes for beyond-5G (B5G) use-cases. The EPIC consortium consists of 8 partners from 7 different EU countries For further project information, please have a look at the announcement letter.
