Beginning of a New Year a great opportunity to express our thanks for all your support and confidence you have placed in EPoSS.

As we look back upon 2019, we find ourselves reflecting on what has been achieved.

The common work on EPoSS-ID, the ECS-SRA Update 2020 lead by EPoSS or the SME Paper with "12 Commandments for Successful SME R&D Funding" are some remarkable highlights.

With pleasure we look back at the first joint ECS Brokerage Event in Brussels in January, SSI Conference in Barcelona in April, our "family meeting": EPoSS Annual Forum in San Sebastian in October and finally EFECS in Helsinki in November with more than 650 participants.

We are happy to have launched the first edition of the EPoSS Start-up Award and to have introduced some special conditions for SMEs.

A great thank you to our Annual Forum host Chris Merveille and his wonderful IKERLAN/IK4 Research Alliance Team and to Murata and Bosch Sensortec for hosting EPoSS Board Meetings in 2019.

Moreover, we would like to express once again a warm welcome to new EPoSS members: Flanders Make from Belgium and Vaisto Solutions Oy from Finland!

We are looking forward to further engaging with you in 2020! As an output from the EPoSS Strategy Workshop in November there are lots of new ideas and new initiatives to be challenged. We are very pleased to continue down this path with and for you!

We would like to wish you and your families a successful, joyful and healthy 2020!
