The EPIC project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 760150.
Welcome to EPIC - Enabling Practical Wireless Tb/s Communications with Next Generation Channel Coding
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. The project also aims 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 design framework developed within the project will offer new ways to conduct research and development and has the potential to affect the development of all future B5G communication systems.
EPIC will put great emphasis on evaluating the commercial viability of the project outcomes targeting beyond-5G systems.
The goals of the EPIC project are:
The project is planned to run for 36 months and is divided into 6 work packages, with significant dependencies and expected synergies.
The EPIC consortium consists of 8 partners from 7 different countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Sweden, Turkey and United Kingdom). Due to excellent cooperation in the proposal creation the basis for a very promising collaboration has already been set.
