Netherlands Antenna Research Framework (NARF)

MISSION

The NARF focuses on the domain of Antenna systems and Propagation (A&P), including theory, experiments and applications.  By cooperating with related disciplines such as signal processing, electronics, material sciences and mathematics new breakthroughs can be created that will enable improvements in existing applications and will enable new application domains. A&P play a key role in today’s society. The number of wireless devices and application domains are growing exponentially. It is crucial to maintain and further expand our strong expertise in the Netherlands in the domain of A&P.  This requires top-research in this domain that attracts talented students. 

The NARF will drive and align the academic research in A&P in the Netherlands. This should provide the required critical mass in terms of manpower and experimental facilities. It will also provide an improved visibility on national and international level. The NARF will support national industry, SME’s and research centers in R&D related to the field of A&P. In addition, we will organize master and post-master level education.

The NARF will define and maintain a national research roadmap in the field of A&P. The roadmaps are based on the input of our stakeholders (industry, research centers and universities). More information.
