EPoSS, the European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration

EPoSS, the European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration , is an industry driven policy initiative defining R&D and innovation needs and policy requirements related to Smart Systems Integration and integrated Micro and Nanosystems. EPoSS is contributing to the Lisbon strategy aiming at boosting economic growth, creating more and better jobs and ensuring sustainable prosperity in Europe.

A group of major industrial companies based in different European Member States intends to coordinate their activities and to develop a vision for and to set-up a research agenda on innovative Smart Systems Integration.

EPoSS brings together European private and public stakeholders in order to create an enduring basis for structuring initiatives, for co-ordinating and bundling efforts, for setting-up sustainable structures of a European Research Area on Smart Systems Integration. EPoSS embraces all key players, public and private in the value chain so as to:

  • provide a common European approach on Innovative Smart Systems Integration from research to production outlining the key issues for a strategic European innovation process
  • formulate a commonly agreed roadmap for action (updating, assembling and completing existing material and approaches) and provide a strategic R&D agenda
  • mobilise public and private human, infrastructural and financial resources and
  • define priorities for common research and innovation in the future.
