The UWICORE laboratory at the Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche (Spain) offers several post-doc and
PhD/Research Engineer positions for research on 5G and 6G networks for Industry 4.0. The research will be
conducted within the framework of two Horizon Europe (Re4dy – European “Data as a PRoduct” Value
Ecosystems for Resilient Factory 4.0 Product and ProDuction ContinuitY and Sustainability,
https://re4dy.eu/- and Zero-SWARM – Zero-enabling smart networked control framework for agile cyber
physical production systems of systems, https://zero-swarm.eu/) and one national research project (DiGiT –
Cognitive 5G/AI-powered Digital Twins for Automated Mobility and Manufacturing). The objective of the
research is to seamlessly integrate 5G/6G networks as part of future digital factories to facilitate a data
continuum between the physical and digital domains. To this aim, the work will focus on three main topics:

1) creating 5G/6G digital twins and develop solutions for the joint planning and commissioning of 5G and
manufacturing digital twins,

2) integration of 5G/6G networks with industrial networks for seamless data
continuum within the manufacturing plan,

3) AI-driven management mechanisms for proactively adapting
5G/6G networks to the service demands and industrial status. Researchers will work together with some of
our international and national partners, and while most of the research will be SW-based, some activities
will include implementation and testing on testbeds and experimental facilities. The specific research
contributions to be conducted are:
• Mechanisms to integrate and coordinate local industrial networks (including TSN type of networks)
and 5G Non-Public Network (NPN) to guarantee end-to-end requirements of industrial services.
• Develop AI-based management mechanisms to proactively adapt the 5G NPN configuration and
operation based on the industrial service demands. This may include the design of network slices,
QoS flows and profiles, radio configuration and computing resources.
• Solutions to proactively manage and adapt local industrial networks with programmable and datadriven
control planes to the service demands and the status of local industrial controllers.
• Implementation of passive and active 5G Asset Administration Shell (AAS) following
recommendations and specifications of 5G-ACIA (5G Alliance for Connected Industries and
Automation), and design and implementation of 5G digital twins.
• Integration of 5G digital twins with digital twins of manufacturing plants, and design of solutions for
the joint planning and commissioning of smart connected and digitalized manufacturing plants and
their embedded 5G networks.
