EPoSS - The Product Driven Platform

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

A very eventful and successful year is gradually coming to an end, with Christmas being only a few days away. The EPoSS Office would like to take the opportunity to thank all members and the Smart Systems community for the fruitful and inspirational cooperation in 2010.

 Christmas 2011

In the past 12 months EPoSS has again proven to be an efficient and trend-setting technology platform. Thanks to your involvement and extraordinary commitment, EPoSS has grown not only in terms of members but also in terms of influence. Your engagement helped to make EPoSS the most active and visible ETP in the European research arena. The platform is closely associated with activities in major research areas such as Green Cars, Internet of Things, Health and Ageing or sustainable production.

One major event in 2010 was the election of Dott. Carmelo Papa, Executive Vice President and General Manager of STMicroelectronics, as the new EPoSS Chairman. Carmelo Papa took over the position from Dr. Klaus Schymanietz, Senior Vice President of EADS Germany, who acted as Chairman of EPoSS since 2006. Further to the Chairman, five Vice Chairmen were selected by the members to represent EPoSS and support the Chairman. The new board has been appointed to lead the platform for the coming two years.

In 2010 EPoSS organised and contributed to a number of successful events, among others the SSI 2010 in Como, the AMAA 2010 in Berlin, the ETP conference in Brussels, the EPoSS Proposers’ Day and Green Cars Strategy event in Berlin, and the EPoSS Annual Forum in Lisbon. Last but not least EPoSS members were very successful in recent calls and a large number of projects initiated by EPoSS members were successfully launched in 2010.

In view of the upcoming next Research Framework Programme FP8, and with Smart Systems being one of the key enablers in many relevant industrial sectors, the coming year will no doubt be equally exciting for EPoSS and the Smart Systems community. We are looking forward to the SMART SYSTEMS INTEGRATION 2011 in March, the AMAA 2011 in June and to the next EPoSS Annual Forum that will take place in Barcelona in October 2011.

We would like to thank you again and wish you and your family
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
