EPoSS brings together European private and public stakeholders in order to create an enduring basis for structuring initiatives, for coordinating and bundling efforts, for setting up sustainable structures of a European Research Area on Smart Systems Integration. With this stakeholder input EPoSS defines research priorities in the field of Smart Systems Integration and creates Roadmaps which are then published as part of Position Papers and Strategic Research Agendas (SRA) for a variety of application fields. These documents serve as input for Common SRA within the EPoSS cooperation activities with other ETPs and can be applied for creating a spectrum of R&I&D Funding Programmes. The schematic description of the EPoSS activities in the European context is shown in the graph below.
