Wireless Innovation between Finland and the US


In 2011, the National Science Foundation (NSF), Tekes - the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation, and the Academy of Finland jointly funded the Wireless Innovation between Finland and US (WiFiUS)??SAVI (Science Across Virtual Institutes)??to help build long-term research and education collaborations between the two world leaders of wireless networking. Given the success of the WiFiUS SAVI, NSF, Tekes, and the Academy of Finland have agreed to embark on a collaborative research program to enlarge the SAVI effort and address compelling research challenges on novel frameworks, architectures, protocols, methodologies and tools for the design and analysis of robust and highly dependable wireless networks, including cognitive radio networks. This NSF solicitation parallels equivalent Tekes and Academy of Finland solicitations. Proposals submitted under this solicitation must describe joint research with Finnish counterparts who are requesting funding separately under the Tekes and/or Academy of Finland solicitations.
