In House 11, Erik Wästlund is just finishing a Zoom meeting on research funding. He is new as professor of psychology, but a familiar face in the university corridors. – I started studying psychology here in 1996, he says. – Back in those days it was mostly because I wanted to do something more besides my job working in a bar. But pretty soon my studies became more important than my work. Psychology was not a given choice.
One6G is a non-profit association with over 100 academic and industry members. Karlstad University can use one6Gs network for establishing strategic collaborations and partnerships with other one6G members. – As one6G member, we can propose new or participate to existing joint research topics as part of one6G working groups.
6G-PATH (6G-pilots and Trials Through Europe) is a new Horizon Europe project where Computer Science and Nursing Science at Karlstad University are participating. The project is going to develop solutions that can be applied in health education. 6G is expected to introduce new technologies that will enable innovative applications.

The need for increased cyber security is growing day by day. As a response, the Swedish government is investing a total of SEK 100 million over the next few years in Cybercampus Sweden, which has now opened with an inauguration at KTH. The purpose behind the investment is to strengthen both skills supply and research in cyber security.
After the recent hacker attacks in which the university's IT supplier Tietoevry, amongst others, was affected, it becomes clear how quickly organizations can become target of such actions. Meiko Jensen, lecturer in cybersecurity at computer science, helps us clarify the areas of hacking and cybersecurity. Hi Meiko Jensen.
Seven computer science students have been recognized for what teachers describe as "outstanding" project work in the Software Engineering course at the computer science department.
Efficient connectivity to mobile and digital services is crucial for numerous societal entities worldwide. The DRIVE project aims to investigate how latency-sensitive mobile services can be designed in the most optimized, secure, and energy-efficient way possible. Progress in this research area is crucial for many societal functions, such as autonomous driving, autonomous manufacturing, smart energy solutions, and remote surgery.
On Thursday 14 September, the subject of Computer Science held an open colloquium where Marco Neri from the telecommunication company Rohde & Schwarz talked about solutions and measurements related to 5G. Marco Neri has been involved in a joint research collaboration with Karlstad University since 2018. The research activity is one of the first collaborations in Europe to measure and analyse 5G mobile network performance.
Mobile networks are constantly evolving to enable improved throughput and low latency for applications. However, it has been shown that current standard congestion control algorithms can cause long delays in mobile networks due to over-allocation of buffers. In his thesis, Habtegebreil Kassaye Haile has investigated the performance of two possible solutions to this problem. The Internet is constantly evolving.
Cross Border Cyber Capacity, a three-year development project that aims to strengthen business development in the field of cyber security while increasing access to expertise and knowledge sharing, is now starting.
Edge computing is one of the drivers for future industries and a fundamental component in 5G networks, says Professor Javid Taheri. He has recently published a reference book on the subject, Edge Intelligence: From Theory to Practice.
