Activity Description Responsible Organization
A3 Antenna Industrial Training Werner Wiesbeck Universität Karlsruhe

The European School of Antennas (ESoA), created in the framework of ACE, is a post graduate school based on a new geographically distributed model. ESoA is terminating its 4th year of activity and will be financed by the European Union till the end of 2009 in the framework of a Marie Curie Project.

The general objectives of the School are:
  1. reinforcing the European excellence in antennas and relevant applications;
  2. creating an effective advanced formative offer at international level to complete individual PhD curricula;
  3. increasing the ties in wireless research and development between Universities and Industries on a European scale;
  4. facilitating the interchange of ideas among early stage researchers and trainers as well as among young researchers, thus increasing the future mobility and synergy.

ESoA Institution and geographical distribution of the ESoA courses
The 22 ESoA courses are distributed over the most accredited European research centres on antennas and wireless systems. ESoA presently includes 24 research institutions (mainly Universities) from 12 different European countries.

In the frame of the ARTIC project, ESoA will organise and give a course on antenna automotive applications. This course will be extended beyond the level of academic teaching for students to provide a specific training for researchers coming from large companies and small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs).

In particular, the course is based on the relevant fundamentals of antennas and propagation channel. The specific mobile to mobile radio channel with be presented. The relevant characteristics of vehicle antennas are evaluated, taking into account their functionalities and design aspects. Combining antennas and the radio channel, the inherent system aspects will be elaborated for Diversity, SIMO and MIMO. The IEEE 802.11p and other DSRC spectrum allocations, especially the lately assigned 5,9 GHz European frequency band will be discussed. One of the goals of the course is to present processes for the optimization of C2C communications systems prior to their hardware development by „Virtual Drive“.
