Project description

Computing for a smarter and greener future

The transformation of computing for a smarter and greener future is not without challenges. One of these hurdles is the achievement of customised low-energy computing (CLEC) for cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things. The EU funded TETRAMAX project will address this issue to pave the way towards a profitable, sustainable and regionally-focused CLEC infrastructure. With three core strategies, TETRAMAX will fuel cross-border application experiments, equipping European ICT industries and newcomers with innovative CLEC technologies. It will also establish a comprehensive CLEC competence centre network, offering support and training to SMEs and mid-caps. Ultimately, TETRAMAX aims to forge a self sustaining ecosystem through tailored business plans.


The major objective of TETRAMAX is to provide an implementation of the European “Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE)” initiative in the domain of customized low energy computing (CLEC) for CPS and the IoT. The project builds on three major activity lines: (1) Stimulating, organizing, co-funding, and evaluating different types of cross-border Application Experiments, providing “EU added value” via innovative CLEC technologies to first-time users and broad markets in European ICT-related industries, (2) Building and leveraging a new European CLEC competence center network, offering technology brokerage, one-stop shop assistance and CLEC training to SMEs and mid-caps, and with a clear evolution path towards new regional digital innovation hubs where needed, and (3) Paving the way towards self-sustainability based on pragmatic and customized long-term business plans. The project impact will be measured based on well-defined, goal-oriented performance indicators. The immediate ambition of TETRAMAX within its duration is to support 50+ industry clients and 3rd parties in the entire EU with innovative technologies, leading to an estimated revenue increase of 25 Mio. € based on 50+ new or improved CLEC-based products, 10+ entirely new businesses/SMEs initiated, as well as 30+ new permanent jobs and significant cost and energy savings in product manufacturing. Moreover, in the long term, TETRAMAX will be the trailblazer towards a reinforced, profitable, and sustainable ecosystem infrastructure, providing CLEC competence, services and a continuous innovation stream at European scale, yet with strong regional presence as preferred by SMEs.
