The European Commission concertation cluster "Radio Access & Spectrum" (RAS) aims to provide a platform for exchanges and concertation between FP6 and FP7 projects. Different issues were identified as topics of common interest at the cluster's constituting meeting in Brussels on the 11th of March 2008, and groups of interest in e.g. Spectrum and Enablers, Radio Resource and Spectrum Management, Convergence, Requirements and Exploitation or Air Interface have been formed.
The RAS Workshop will represent an opportunity to show the latest technical results obtained in the context of FP6 and FP7 projects.
