6G Finland is an active coalition of Finnish 6G R&D organizations to advance the impact of Finnish 6G expertise globally, build new international partnerships, and intensify national 6G development efforts towards sustainable and data-driven society enabled by instant and unlimited wireless connectivity.
Finland has a long and successful history in the field of wireless mobile technologies. Numerous successes have shown us the power of cooperation. It has – once again – led us to a global leading position, now in 6G research and development. The world’s first large-scale 6G research program, 6G Flagship was launched in Finland in 2018.
Currently, Finland also leads the European 6G flagship initiative, Hexa-X-II funded by EU and plays a significant role in other 6G measures of the EU as well. The motivation for the Hexa-X-II project stems from the ongoing Hexa-X project, which has successfully developed a vision for 6G wireless networks and positioned itself at the centre of 6G development on a global scale, particularly in Europe. The key motivating factors for Hexa-X-II include technology push, society pull, and strategic autonomy.
6G Finland is a national contact point of Finnish 6G know-how, and actively participates in 6G discussion both nationally and internationally. 6G Finland operates as a network to which new members are invited on a content basis.
