Klaus Moessner is Professor in Cognitive Networks in the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC). He has been actively involved in the various European Community funded research frameworks (from FP 5 onwards). He has also had involvement in some 20+ other EU funded projects, has been technical manager and project manager, has led the FP7 project SocIoTal and is currently leading the H2020 EU-Japan project iKaaS, the 5G PPP project Speed5G, and since September 2017 the EU-Taiwan project Clear5G.Klaus' research interests are around the aspects of resource management in wireless communication systems, reconfigurability on the different system levels, including reconfiguration management and scheduling in wireless networks as well as network supported adaptability of multimodal user interfaces. He was founding chair of the IEEE DySPAN working group 6 on Spectrum Sensing Interfaces.He is actively involved in the investigation and teaching of mobile service provision (including IoT deployments and services). His research includes the area of resource efficiency and on mechanisms for dynamic resource allocation. And he is contributing to the work on System Architecture and Co-existence aspects in the 5GIC, covering aspects including dynamic spectrum sharing/access, self-organisation of the radio access and the regulatory implications of DSA and Cognitive Radio Networks.
Since July 2017 Klaus is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS, in Berlin, Germany.

- Internet of Things experimentation and development (sensing, actuation, knowledge derivation)
- Location based services
- IoT based real world knowledge and event detection
- 5G Systems
- Spectrum sharing and resource scheduling
- Service provision
- Radio context
- Access Network Management
Courses I teach on
Postgraduate research supervision
I am constantly searching for new PhD students for a wide range of research topics including (but not limited to):
- Sensor Networking and Mobile Networking
- IoT deployments and IoT Services
- Machine Learning for Context analysis and knowledge generation (for IoT deployments and network management)
- Resource Management in Networks, Network Architectures
- Distributed Service provision
There is no fixed funding allocation to support PhD students, meaning you will have to find your own funding from national programms or alike. However, there are many external funding sources and I am very happy to help, saying this, occasionally we may have funding available to fund research students. Independent of the funding situation, if you do have research ideas, or a research proposal in any of these areas, please do contact me.
