Smart Systems Integration Ecosystem Cookbook The document is a public deliverable of the EXPRESS project. It is a hands-on SSI ecosystem “cookbook” that describes a standardised methodology for facilitating best practices transfer and collaboration with other ecosystem members, across regions in and outside of Europe, across application sectors, technologies and value chains from research to production, and across ecosystem boundaries.
It focuses on the use of several tools developed in the frame of the EXPRESS project.

EU Policies and Initiatives

EPoSS - The European Technology Platform for 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 and integrated Micro- and Nanosystems. EPoSS is contributing to EUROPE 2020, the EU's growth strategy for the coming decade, to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy. EPoSS provides a common European approach on Innovative Smart Systems Integration from research to production, defines priorities for common research and innovation in the future, formulates commonly agreed road maps for action, provides a Strategic Research Agenda, mobilises public and private resources, and supports its members in coordinating their joint research efforts and improving communication amongst the members as well as towards the European Commission.

Smart Systems Integration on the European Commission's website

The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 (Regulation (EU) No 1291/2013) identifies a new generation of components and systems, i.e. engineering of advanced, embedded and energy- and resource- efficient components and systems, as a line of activity contributing to the leadership in enabling and industrial technologies.

ECSEL JU

The Public-Private Partnership keeping Europe at the forefront of technology development. Electronic components and systems (ECS) are a pervasive Key Enabling Technology, impacting all industrial branches and almost all aspects of life. A smartphone, a smart card, a smart energy grid, a smart city, even smart governance; everything “smart” is based on integrating semiconductor chips running embedded software. They provide the fabric on which the internet runs; they give life to portable phones and tablets; they drive driverless cars and trains, fly airliners, drones and satellites. In modern times, no national economy can win in the global competition without mastering this technology, with unparalleled systemic and strategic impact.

Eurostars

Eurostars is a joint programme between EUREKA and the European Commission, co-funded from the national budgets of 36 Eurostars Participating States and Partner Countries and by the European Union through Horizon 2020 with the aim to support international innovative projects led by research and development- performing small- and medium-sized enterprises (R&D-performing SMEs). With its bottom-up approach, Eurostars supports the development of rapidly marketable innovative products, processes and services that help improve the daily lives of people around the world. Eurostars has been carefully developed to meet the specific needs of SMEs. It is an ideal first step in international cooperation, enabling small businesses to combine and share expertise and benefit from working beyond national borders.
