Current societal prospects in the ICT arena advance a sustained demand for faster and more dependable wireless communications designed under the paradigm of enhanced energy efficiency and other criteria such as connectivity, resilience or complexity. A salient feature in next generation networks (5G) will be their ability to handle the interference resulting from a large population of heterogeneous terminals with varying requirements, while preserving relevant performance figures. In this way, interference management becomes indispensable, a challenge that WINTER will address through different fronts:

- adaptive, flexible, and efficient radio acces schemes in view of spectrum scarcity.

- management of massive multiple access interference according to a number of performance figures.

- large-scale networks of low-cost devices integrating sensors and actuators capable of computation and communication
