SEAWave and GOLIAT European Projects: objectives and expected results
Digital technologies and wireless communication services will help achieve the sustainability goals of the European Green Deal in many sectors. The use of next-generation radio networks like 5G promises higher data transfer speeds and increased network capacity compared to previous generations. While digitization offers new possibilities, it also presents potential health risks and, at the very least, a perception of risk. Europe needs a digital sector that puts sustainability at the heart of its concerns and, when deploying new technologies, that measures the potential risks to human health as well as the benefits they bring.

The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) has published guidelines for limiting exposure to electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields. EU Member States are subject to Council Recommendation 1999/519/EC and Directive 2013/35/EU, which follow these guidelines. Nevertheless, there are concerns about the possible impact on health and safety of potentially higher exposure to EMF, resulting for example from the deployment of 5G technology. Increased exposure may result, for example, from the additional use of higher frequencies and the potential aggregation of different signals, especially in cities. To respond to these European concerns, a call for projects was launched in 2021 with HORIZON-HLTH-2021-ENVHLTH-02-01 .
Télécom Paris and the C2M chair are involved in two research projects funded by the European call for projects HORIZON-HLTH-2021-ENVHLTH-02-01: GOLIAT and SEAWave. This webinar will allow Monica Guxens, GOLIAT project leader, and Theodoros Samaras, SEAWave project leader, to present the objectives and expected results of these two initiatives.
