The project is a response to the rapid growth in mobile communications, which is doubling worldwide every year.

It will develop joint academic-industry programmes to train a new generation of ‘agile innovation’ researchers and engineers.

Working in this way aims to develop and test innovative approaches and products at speed.  This reduces risk and increases the gateway’s impact by turning good ideas into profitable business outcomes.

The gateway will work through links with three other organisations, including two ‘Catapult Centres’ or physical centres that bring together businesses, scientists and engineers to apply scientific research. These are the Connected Digital Economy Catapult, the Surrey International Development Centre for Fifth-Generation (‘5G’) Mobile Communications, and the Satellite Applications Catapult at Harwell.

Major industry partners include the BBC, Aeroflex, Mycom and Everything Everywhere Ltd (EE).
