University of Oulu (UOULU) : The Department of Communications Engineering (DCE) and CWC represent leading academic wireless communications research renowned by the world-wide research community. The basic research conducted at DCE/CWC is divided into four research groups: Radio Access Technologies, Communication Signal Processing, Internetworking and Wireless Systems which concentrates mainly on application-oriented research.  DCE aims to excel in academic performance by offering top-quality training and producing world-class graduates and top-notch scientific publications. DCE runs its own international Master's program "Wireless Communications Engineering" and offers a doctoral curriculum.

CWC aims at multi-level mastering of future wireless communications from a myriad of requirements to potential technological solutions. The objective of CWC is to provide a widely recognized, high-quality international research and learning environment for its 130 personnel including faculty, staff members and graduate students. In all its activities, CWC strives towards rapidly reacting to changes occurring in its operational environment as well as to the expectations and needs expressed by its national and global research partners. The operational basis of CWC is largely dependable on its funding, 75-80% of which is granted by highly competed external sources including European Commission, European Defence Agency, Tekes, Academy of Finland, and national and international companies. The research group runs 40-50 externally funded research projects annually. CWC has been or is a partner in many EU projects such as BeFemto, QoSMOS, EARTH, WINNER1-2, SENSEI, BUTLER, URANUS, and DUPLO.

Through the research developed in these projects as well as in many others, CWC has become the leading research centre in advanced physical layer techniques, radio resource management and dynamic spectrum sharing areas. UOulu will provide to RESCUE Project expertise in fundamental joint source-channel code design and related resource allocation and sharing. In addition, CWC works on integration of terrestrial and satellite wireless systems and has done several projects in that area with European Space Agency.
