Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT) held on February 5 and 6 the 4th Plenary Meeting of SECRET, a project that Proef integrates since the beginning of 2017.
For the first time since the project began, the 13 PhD researchers recruited by the 8 partners of the consortium attended at the meeting. These young researchers will be working on the preparation of their PhD thesis and simultaneously developing the research needed to achieve the major objectives proposed in the project - Create, in a 5G context, a high-speed network supported by low-cost mobile "Small Cells" and reduced energy consumption.
The project has also the objective to actively contribute to the researchers’ training, therefore, the project includes in its program several courses, seminars and workshops aimed to strengthen their individual skills.
During the 2nd day of the meeting two courses were presented, the "Scientific Paper" and the "Presentation Skills", and a seminar organized by Proef on the theme "Network sharing and virtualization". For this purpose, Proef invited professors from IT for a technical approach to the theme and staff from NOS for a business perspective.
