The main target of FP7-CREW is to establish an open federated test platform, which facilitates experimentally-driven research on advanced spectrum sensing, cognitive radio and cognitive networking strategies in view of horizontal and vertical spectrum sharing in licensed and unlicensed bands. The CREW platform incorporates 5 individual wireless testbeds incorporating diverse wireless technologies (heterogeneous ISM, heterogeneous licensed, cellular, wireless sensor, heterogeneous outdoor) augmented with State-of-the-Art cognitive sensing platforms.

The CREW project started in October 2010 with a consortium of 7 partners. In July 2011, an eighth partner joined. To extend the use of the federated testbeds to external researchers, two open calls were organized. The second open call closed on October 3, at 17:00 Brussels time. The CREW project received 21 proposals, (co-)submitted by 24 proposers.

After a thorough review process by external independent reviewers, it was found that the quality of most proposals was good to very good. Among the 4 proposals that can receive funding as a result of the second open call, the proposal of University of Thessaly (GR) was selected first among the 21 submissions.
