Your NGI-related portfolio: Current ongoing deployment of 5G is regularly exposing the integral limits of the system compared to what promised during the last decade such as Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication (URLLC). This pushes the research community to focus on bringing in new, innovative, relevant technologies keeping the vision of 5G beyond/6G networks intact. Our Futuristic world will be more digitized, Intelligent, connected and data driven as demand is growing exponentially. Futuristic services such connected Robots, autonomous vehicles, e-health, trustable food supply chain mechanisms, entertainment services broadcasting (Netflix, Amazon Prime) etc. will be highly dependent on instantaneous, virtually limitless wireless connectivity. To bring in and make super-fast connectivity sustainable, a number of research issues such as traffic congestion, URLLC, secure and trustable platforms, interference management, integrating innovative technologies are some of key subjects that need to be touched. In this particular proposal, our focus would be using some core key technologies (Quantum Internet, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence etc.) to minimize traffic congestion in the 5G Beyond/6G networks as it is predicted that 10, 000 times traffic will Increase in the next decade. Also, we have recently seen the traffic congestion issue during COVID-19 epidemic situation where people are restricted to work from home and as expected, the whole traffic load switch towards the Wi-Fi providers from mobile network operators.

The 30-months project will push the Next Generation Internet a step further by providing cascade funding to EU-based researchers and innovators in carrying out Next Generation Internet related experiments in collaboration with US research teams.
