CNIT (National Inter-University Consortium for Telecommunications) is a non-profit Consortium, bringing together 37 Italian Universities and several institutes of the National Research Council (CNR, the largest public research institution in Italy), to foster research activity in the field of telecommunications. CNIT participated in hundreds of research projects, including EU coordinated projects, ERC grants and Italian national-wide initiatives. CNIT is active in the editorial and technical boards of several major journals and conferences, and in standardization bodies (IETF, ITU, OASIS, WWRF). Several CNIT members have been evaluators/reviewers for EU projects. CNIT operates a satellite network, three national laboratories (Photonic Networks, Radar & Surveillance Systems, Multimedia Communications) and 43 Research Units, one for each participating university and participating CNR institute. CNIT will participate to the project with the Research Unit based in the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio (UNICLAM), Cassino, Italy.
