Smart Systems for Bio-based Economy - Augmented information

Introduction

The main drivers and barriers identified in the EPoSS SRA are also addressed in the analysed documents.

  • Drivers: “Increased functionality” is addressed in the EPoSS SRA as the main driver for Smart Systems. Besides, “increased reliability” of machines and processes, product health assessment (it can be food or any manufacturing product) drives the use of smart sensors or devices to reach new functionalities.
  • Barriers: in the EPoSS SRA, “Untried techniques” appears to be the most obstructive difficulty. According to ETP revision “policy development needs improvement” in order to encourage emergent technological implementation and new solution design.

This reinforces the actions claimed in the EPoSS SRA that should be complemented with additional actions on:

  • Positioning EPoSS as a key actor for collaboration regarding Smart Systems Integration
  • Encouraging inter-disciplinary R&D

There is a match between the technology challenges derived from the links identified in the analysed documentation and the resulting benefits that can be obtained by meeting them.
According to SRA, and confirmed with ETP revision, a key issue is:

  • Implementing trustworthy manufacturing process while developing “design for manufacturing”, “design for testing” and “design for reliability” with diversity of materials combined with increased system complexity.

This corresponds with main technology challenges derived from links regarding integration of complementary processes, sensors for food security and sustainability, and control systems oriented to ensure safety and security of the food chain.

Augmented information

 

The following table highlights (yello) the European Technology Platforms (ETPs) involved in this sector and for which the integration of Smart Systems does represent a potential benefit and competitive advantage. It provides also access to the results of analysis of opportunities, drivers & barriers as well as technical/research challenges for the specific sector.
