SMART SYSTEMS INTEGRATION 2012
"Technology - Smaller! Smarter!
Smart Systems Integration is the international communication platform for research institutes and manufacturers to exchange know-how on smart systems integration and to create the basis for successful research co operations with focus on Europe.
The event is part of the activities of EPoSS, the European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration.
EPoSS provides keynote speeches and organises special sessions at the conference. Participation in these sessions is free of charge. There also is a special reduced fee for EPoSS members for participation at the full conference (approx. 30% discount), and EPoSS has a booth at the exhibition.
The exhibition is the right place for research institutions, manufacturers, suppliers, service providers, producers of sub-assemblies, components and systems in the sectors microsystems and nanotechnology, microelectronics, micromechanics, sensor technology and wireless communication.

EPoSS Session I:
New approaches in Smart Systems research
In addition to results from basic and applied research in key areas of Smart Systems Integration, such as health and medical, micro-nano-bio integration, energy efficiency, or manufacturing, the session aims at establishing a link between Smart Systems research and research activities until now unrelated to SSI, such as services or new materials research.
Invited speakers will highlight their capabilities and achievements, and will also draw attention to new bases for future Smart Systems developments. The session will go beyond the borders of traditional Smart Systems R&D and present approaches, findings, and prospects of radically new lines of research or until now SSI unaware research strands - thereby showcasing the performance of European research.

EPoSS Session II:
Policy perspectives for Smart Systems Integration
Based on knowledge and experience in Smart Systems research and innovation and using the core statements of Session I as starting point, EPoSS key representatives will present the EPoSS position in the current discussion on future research and innovation programmes in terms of thematic priority setting.
The session will highlight successful research and good practice, but will also point at white spots in the landscape of EU research and at red flag areas on Europe’s path towards the Innovation Union.
Participation in the EPoSS sessions is free of charge.
EPoSS also has a booth at the SSI 2012 exhibition. All participants are invited to visit the booth for information on EPoSS, to exchange views on Smart Systems Integration or discuss future projects and developments.
EPoSS members get approx. 30% discount on the conference
