Vietnamese professor appointed 6G research chair in UK

A Vietnamese professor has been appointed research chair of the UK’s Royal Academy of Engineering (RAENG) to study the next chapter of telecommunication advances, including 6G development.

Prof. Duong Quang Trung, from the Center for Wireless Innovation (CWI) within the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT) at Queen’s University Belfast in the UK, will take on the research chair position of a comprehensive study into 6G over the next five years, the Royal Academy of Engineering announced on its official website.

The research mulls a leap from the 5G standard and a kickstart toward zero-latency and ultra-reliable connection under the framework of 6G — the sixth generation of wireless communications technologies supporting cellular data networks.

“Our rapidly changing world is currently undergoing a ‘fourth industrial revolution’ that is currently being driven by 5G communications and cyber-physical systems,” Trung was quoted as saying in a statement published on the RAENG’s announcement.

“My driving passion is to take that revolution forward into the next decade and for 6G to enable a future that benefits all of society,” the Vietnamese professor said.

Trung expects a wide range of sectors to gain benefits from his findings, including remote medical diagnosis and surgery, autonomous vehicles, virtual and augmented reality for education, healthcare and entertainment, smart and safe city development, and disaster management.

Duong Quang Trung was born in 1979 in Hoi An City in the central Vietnamese province of Quang Nam.

An outstanding researcher in the field of telecommunications, he has received multiple awards for his work, most notably the Newton Prize given by the UK government in 2017.
