EPoSS - The Product Driven Platform

Call for Presentations for EPoSS Annual Forum 2013

Up one level

“Geared up for Horizon 2020: Smart Systems Satisfying Societal Needs, Meeting Market Requirements & Exploiting Cross-Cutting Technologies”

Flyer_EPoSS Annual Forum 2013_CfP.pngHorizon 2020 identifies Smart Systems Integration as a key contributor to the three envisaged priorities: societal challenges, industrial leadership and excellent science.

Smart Systems Integration provides solutions for the societal challenges that Europe is currently facing, in particular for secure, clean and efficient energy, for health, well-being and demographic change, and for smart, green and integrated transport.

In order to master societal challenges, a lively Smart Systems Integration Ecosystem is required, which is able to provide a comprehensive portfolio of competitive products.

The key enabler for such products and consequently for European industrial leadership is Smart Systems Integration, with its multi-disciplinary and multi-scale approach and its ability to use the best properties of each of these for product development.

To keep a leading position, it is essential to develop and maintain an excellent science base in Europe. This task requires a continuous and concerted engagement of all players, from education, through basic research, to successful product launch.

EPoSS with its Annual Forum provides the ideal environment for the presentation of good practice and the exchange of knowledge.

This year’s EPoSS Call for Presentations therefore focuses upon:

1. Smart Systems satisfying societal needs

We invite end users such as clinicians, hospital operators, equipment manufacturers, service providers, energy utilities, water suppliers, mass transportation organisations and logistics companies to present their Smart Systems solutions and requirements, with an emphasis upon the following three sectors in order to illustrate the impact of Smart Systems in every walk of life and the way they are perceived by the general public:

  • secure, clean and efficient energy,
  • health, well-being and demographic change,
  • smart, green and integrated transport

2. Smart Systems meeting market requirements

We invite presentations from manufacturers and users who capitalise on the advantages of Smart Systems Integration for innovative and competitive products in application fields where Europe is traditionally strong or which are considered promising sectors, such as:

  • medical devices
  • industrial automation
  • automotive
  • aerospace
  • energy
  • food & farming
  • environment

3. Smart Systems exploiting cross-cutting technologies

We invite contributions from experts in new operating principles that are able to substantially enhance product performance as well as papers from technology developers who are mastering the multi-disciplinary, multi-material and multi-scale challenges of Smart Systems Integration.
