From 2018-10-16 to 2018-10-18, Greece
This year’s EPoSS Annual Forum is organised with the support of the Greek Centre for Research and Technology - CERTH. The event will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece from 16 to 18 October 2018 in conjunction with the EPoSS General Assembly and the yearly MNBS workshop on Micro-Nano-Bio-Systems organised by DG CNECT of the European Commission.
EPoSS Annual Forum & MNBS 2018: “Smart Systems: Enabler for a Competitive Digital Europe” in Thessaloniki from 16 to 18 October 2018
Under the working title “Smart Systems: Enabler for a Competitive Digital Europe”, EPoSS wants to demonstrate novel opportunities for Smart Systems to tackle the challenges linked to digital transformation. Digitisation is seen as one of the driving forces opening a spectrum of possibilities for new businesses and product developments, thus strongly influencing a continuous advancement of Smart Systems.

The European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration - EPoSS - is an industry-driven policy initiative defining R&D and innovation needs as well as policy requirements related to Smart Systems Integration (SSI) and integrated Micro- and Nanosystems. EPoSS brings together European private and public stakeholders in order to create an enduring basis for structuring initiatives, for coordinating and bundling efforts, and for setting up sustainable structures of a European Research Area on Smart Systems Integration. EPoSS embraces all key players, public and private, in the entire value chain. The thematic focus of EPoSS is Smart System Integration (SSI) in various application fields such as Automotive, Healthy Living, Manufacturing, Internet of Things, Energy, Natural Resources, and Security. In order to demonstrate the latest developments in these field, EPoSS organises each year its Annual Forum and gathers its members at the General Assembly.

This year, the event takes place in co-location with the MNBS workshop. MNBS is an initiative coordinated by the European Commission and clustering EU-funded projects covering research, development and system integration across technologies, like bio-electronics, micro-nano electronics, nanotechnology, biotechnology, biomaterials and ICT, to achieve innovation in several sectors and applications - e.g. health & care, food & agriculture, environment & safety. The MNBS community is multidisciplinary and the corresponding market goes across existing markets in BioMEMs, Smart Systems, bio-electronics & bio-photonics, Medical Devices & in vitro diagnostics, Sensors and Instrumentation for measurements at the point of need.
