Smart Systems are an indispensable part of modern society, delivering high-performance products in growing sectors such as health, transport, communications, energy, water, textiles, forestry and food, thereby answering societal challenges. To further advance Smart Systems Integration in Europe, a dedicated strategy towards disruptive and continuous technology development and innovation is called for. To stay globally competitive, Smart Systems Integration has to grow into an ecosystem that is able to provide smart technologies addressing any challenge everywhere. This session will examine upcoming opportunities and challenges and prepare for long-term strategies for the development of Smart Systems Integration in Europe.

What’s inSSIght? Excellence in Smart Systems
Wednesday, 08.03.2017, 13:45 - 15:25 hrs, Grand Island Ballroom I
This session, which is co-organised by the EU-funded Coordination and Support Action “inSSIght – In-depth support for innovation and exploitation in Smart Systems Integration”, will look into user needs and requirements towards customer acceptance for Smart Systems. Furthermore, customer needs will be matched with showcases of innovative Smart Systems in high potential sectors such as Transportation, Health, Manufacturing, Internet of Things, Energy, Natural Resources, and Security. Presentations by key stakeholders of the Smart Systems ecosystem will hence not only illustrate the complexity of the topic, but will also introduce tools, support measures and mechanisms that are being deployed to achieve, maintain and demonstrate excellence in Smart Systems Integration.
