MetaWireless is the first EU training-through-research program that is focused on the emerging interdisciplinary field of RIS-based wireless networks, which encompasses electromagnetics, physics, wireless communications, networks, learning, and software programmability. No academic/research course on RISs for wireless networks (at the undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral level) exists in any EU university. The Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of MetaWireless will be the only doctoral students able to conduct research by using the only available (in the world) and fully-functional RIS-based wireless communication platforms, which are made available by SEU and THU.
The following table summarizes the main data of the ESRs.
