Earlier this year, the Research Triangle region was selected to host the country’s third advanced wireless research facility. It’s part of a nationwide effort to explore avenues for improving wireless communication, led by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and jointly coordinated by U.S. Ignite and Northeastern University. Over the next seven years, the NSF and an industry consortium are investing $100 million to build next-generation wireless research platforms across the country.
The goal? To accelerate the development and commercialization of promising technologies, ensuring our nation’s leadership in wireless communications and preparing tomorrow’s workforce. You can learn more about NC State University's involvement on their website.
