In this paper, we describe GREENET (an early stage training network in enabling technologies for green radio), which is a new project recently funded by the European Commission under the auspices of the 2010 Marie Curie People Programme. Through the recruitment and personalized training of 17 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), in GREENET we are committed to the development of new disruptive technologies to address all aspects of energy efficiency in wireless networks, from the user devices to the core network infrastructure, along with the ways the devices and equipment interact with one another. Novel techniques at the physical, link, and network layers to reduce the energy consumption and carbon footprint of 4G devices will be investigated, such as Spatial Modulation (SM) for Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems, Cooperative Automatic Repeat reQuest (C-ARQ) protocols, and Network Coding (NC) for lossy networks. Furthermore, cooperation and cognition paradigms will be exploited as additional assets to improve the energy efficiency of wireless networks with the challenging but indispensable constraint of optimizing the system capacity without degrading the user's Quality-of-Service (QoS).
