Florian Vidal, REVOLVE PhD Fellow, recommends that if you are a student studying antennas then a visit to the ESoA (European School of Antennas) is a must! Several times a year, many universities organize antenna courses for PhD students . In May 2019, Florian went on a course organized by Chalmers University in the city of Gothenburg and on the topic of 5G antennas. During that week, technical courses and discussion sessions were organized on how antenna technologies can help to set up 5G networks. The courses were given during the day by people from industry or professors and at the end of the day students were given the opportunity to discuss the ideas that were presented during the day.
What is 5G? Imagine 10 to 100 times more datarate and latency of about 1ms… Perfect to watch Netflix in high definition or to play in the highest leagues of League of Legends. ESoA is also a social event where I met other PhDs, professor and people from industry. Networking around a beer or a bowling session is always great!
