Abstract

Proposal for a Council regulation on the establishment of the "ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking" to implement a Joint Technology Initiative in Embedded Computing Systems {SEC(2007) 0582} {SEC(2007) 0583} COM(2007) 243 final
Europe's capability to engineer domain-specific solutions for embedded electronic systems has given the EU a large share of the market in key areas such as the automotive, industrial and energy sectors, telecoms, or aerospace. This leadership position needs to be strengthened by harnessing the next generation of information technology systems that are already transforming our economy and society: the "embedding of intelligence" provides new functionality and adds value to everyday products, from cars and planes to mobile phones and pacemakers, and increases productivity in manufacturing and the distribution of goods and services. Embedded systems are crucial not only for the innovation potential and competitiveness of existing European industrial sectors, but also for opening the way to the creation of entirely new markets and societal applications - from personal health systems to environmental monitoring.
The Specific Programme "Cooperation" of the European Community Seventh Framework Programme (2007-2013) for research, technological development and demonstration activities introduces the Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) as a new way of realising public-private partnerships in research at European level. JTIs are an expression of the EU's strong commitment to coordinating research efforts. The aims are to achieve greater strategic focus by supporting common ambitious research agendas in areas that are crucial for competitiveness and growth, to assemble and coordinate at EU level a critical mass of research drawing on all sources of R&D investment, whether public or private, and to provide a tighter coupling between research and innovation, contributing so to the realisation of the European Research Area and Europe's competitiveness goals.
