Consultation meeting on Technology Platforms for Embedded Systems, 12 January 2004

On 12th January 2004, Erkki Liikanen, European Commissioner for Enterprise and the Information Society met with top level executives from major European Companies to discuss future challenges the embedded systems industry is facing. The aim of the consultation meeting was to measure the level of industrial interest and support for a Technology Platform centred on Embedded Systems. As more IT is increasingly embedded in all kinds of products and systems to provide new functionality and competitive advantage, systems design becomes a major challenge and a vast new potential is created for new applications that needs to be exploited.

The Technology Platform initiative was strongly endorsed by the industrial representatives and a steering group was set up to initiate the process. This initial meeting addressed the content, structure and management of the platform. A Steering Group was set up, with the goal of defining the framework for an Embedded Systems Technology Platform by the end of 2004.
