The European industry association supporting Smart Systems technologies and integration and EURIPIDES, the EUREKA Cluster on Smart Electronics Systems have decided to strengthen their cooperation and join forces to further boost the European strategy on Innovative Smart Systems Integration from research to production.
As a first step, the two organisations have agreed to invite the two Chairmen to their respective Board meetings on a permanent basis. In the short term, EPoSS and EURIPIDES² will define more common activities and explore synergies.
EPoSS Association is a key player in providing a common European approach on Innovative Smart Systems Integration from research to production outlining the key issues for a strategic European innovation process and defining priorities for common research and innovation in the future.
“Getting communities closer and creating a stronger network is a key issue for Smart Systems integration. This is true not only for innovation and business opportunities, but also for creating a success story that can really help companies and RTOs to create value for the benefit of European citizens. This is why EURIPIDES² and EPoSS have decided to strengthen their cooperation to create the best synergies between their respective networks.” says Dr.-Ing. Jochen Langheim, EURIPIDES² Chairman.
“Smart Systems Integration is a key pillar in the digital transformation of Europe. Systems are more and more invisible in products, but also increasingly complex. Most of the R&D&I challenges that the European industry in Systems Integration is facing will not be solved by a single company. This is why EPoSS will continue to support its members in coordinating their joint research efforts. Intensifying our relations with EURIPIDES² and reinforcing the relations between our community members is therefore a must.” concludes Dr. Stefan Finkbeiner, EPoSS Chairman.
