EPoSS Roadmap Automated Driving 2014

This roadmap is based on surveys and consultations among major European automotive manufacturers and suppliers. Starting from an analysis of goals and challenges towards the introduction of automated driving and a description of the state-of-the-art technologies, technology roadmaps that provide information about content and timescales of actions in Research and Innovation (R&I) on technology and in framework conditions, are presented.
These roadmaps are organized along mile-stones for implementation of highly automated driving.

Joint position of the European Technology Platforms from the ICT Sector on Horizon 2020

This paper provides the joint position of five European Technology Platforms (ETPs) from the ICT domain. They have teamed up in a cross-ETP (xETP) endeavour to provide common observations and recommendations on Horizon 2020, the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation for the period 2014 – 2020.
The ETPs of this endeavour provide within their specific area an industry-lead framework for stakeholders to define research priorities and action plans on a number of technological areas.

EPoSS SRA 2007

Strong international competition calls for rapid product change, higher quality, lower cost and shorter time to markets. Smaller and smarter by transdisciplinarity will be the key issue in the future, innovative systems integration will pose a major challenge. The evolution of the critical dimension of technologies into the nanometer scale together with the exploitation of completely new phenomena at the atomic and molecular levels has opened opportunities for groundbreaking solutions to old and new problems in bioengineering, environment, human-machine interface, etc.
