Research Collaboration

The collaboration with international academic institutions is essential to produce high-quality research, to develop the research skills and technologies and to improve the research career. Therefore, the “Antennas and Electromagnetics Research Group” has built a strong international collaboration by developing a research partnership with the Radio Frequency Laboratory at “University of Quebec, Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), in Montreal, Canada: http://www.inrs.ca/english/research-centres/emt/labs-facilities)”.

 

This collaboration covers different aspects:

  • Exchange between researchers and lecturers
  • Organize keynote speeches, symposiums and conferences
  • Access state-of-the-art facilities (e.g. anechoic chamber, PCB Laser prototyping, near and far-field antenna measurement system and RF instruments, etc.) in a cost effective manner
