Travel Grant Funded by the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO) Awarded to Robin Wydaeghe for a Project at IT'IS

Robin Wydaeghe of the Department of Information Technology of Ghent University has been awarded a travel grant for a short stay abroad to pursue research at IT'IS. The award is funded by the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO). The title of his project is Bringing together the state-of-the-art in propagation and exposure modeling for advanced 5G and 6G technologies.

Robin's visit will strengthen the relationship between his home institution – the WAVES research unit of Ghent University – and Z43 partners, the IT'IS Foundation and ZMT Zurich MedTech AG. His research activities will include the use of the latest version of ZMT's Sim4Life to generate new layered skin models for enhanced investigation of exposure to the millimeter-waves of emerging 5G and 6G technologies.

The FWO provides competitive funding to encourage mobility among researchers and international contacts between research groups. This type of grant for a short study visit of up to one month abroad supports researchers performing basic research or learning specific research techniques at institutions outside of Belgium.


Congratulations Robin, and welcome to IT'IS!
