ARTEMIS Industry Association is a membership organisation with more than 180 members and associates from all over Europe. The multidisciplinary nature of the membership provides an excellent network for the exchange of technology ideas, cross-domain fertilisation, as well as for large innovation initiatives.
ARTEMIS Industry Association is the association for actors in Embedded Intelligent Systems within Europe. As private partner, the association represents its members - industry, SMEs, universities and research institutes - in ECSEL Joint Undertaking.
ARTEMIS Industry Association continuously promotes the R&I interests of its members to the European Commission and the Public Authorities of the participating states.
The association strongly believes that the continued success of the Embedded Intelligent Systems sector in Europe depends on one coordinated, pan-European strategy. Forming this strategy is a part of the ARTEMIS European Technology Platform, which is developed & executed by the ARTEMIS Industry Association, and results in 4 core values:
The ARTEMIS Industry Association strategy is based on the following angles:
1To represent R&I actors in Embedded Intelligent Systems in Europe and to continuously promote the R&I interests of its members to the European Commission and the Public Authorities of the participating states.
2To focus on disseminating and supporting the running ARTEMIS-JU projects until 2017 and new ECSEL & H2020 projects.
3To participate in ECSEL Joint Undertaking with the ‘ARTEMIS Community’, involving industry, SMEs, universities and research institutes. ARTEMIS Industry Association will support ECSEL Joint Undertaking and its projects in the same way as the association has supported ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking.
As a control engineer and university professor I found participation to ARTEMIS-IA events and Embedded Systems projects invaluable for various reasons:
- from my viewpoint, embedded systems are made to gather information from the field, possibly seamlessly across protocols and subsystems, organize them and... use them to control systems and optimize decisions; hence the intellectual framework is just the right one;
- the ARTEMIS Brokerage events are well organized and open to newcomers;
- people and projects in ARTEMIS have a peculiar mixture of academia and industry cultures, grounded on the applications but with interest on the innovation academic research can inject.
Hence I count to continue participating to ARTEMIS!
TNO has been active in sensors and sensor applications for decades moving from stand-alone sensors to sensor networks and cyber physical systems. In 2010 TNO joined ARTEMIS-IA to get in more closer contact to the Embedded Systems world. Because of this TNO was able to get involved in ARTEMIS projects enabling to strengthen its technology position and market access. As I am representing TNO in the WG Strategic Research Agenda, TNO is also able to influence the course of ARTEMIS-IA.
New technologies and challenges created the need for a brand-new Strategic Research Agenda. In April 2016 the SRA 2016 was launched.
The ECSEL-JU programme started with the merge of the previous ARTEMIS-JU and the ENIAC-JU in June 2014 and will finish in 2024. ARTEMIS Industry Association represents actors from the Embedded Intelligent Systems area.
ARTEMIS Industry Association, together with ITEA, conducted a thorough study on the economic dimensions of Digital Technology and the impact of software innovation on revenue and jobs in Europe. The results of this study are published in the ITEA-ARTEMIS-IA High-Level Vision 2030.
New technical options and challenges occurred and it became clear that an update of the first edition of the SRA was needed. The SRA 2011 was therefore launched in April that year.
The ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking (JU) became a reality in February 2008 as a Community body based in Brussels by means of a Council Regulation.
In 2007, the ARTEMIS Industry Association was founded as legal body, to continue the activities of the ARTEMIS ETP and to become the legal private partner in the ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking.
One of the core tasks of the ARTEMIS ETP was to define a common Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) which acts as a reference for the Embedded Computing domain to attract investment from the stakeholders. The first version of the SRA was published in March 2006.
The ARTEMIS European Technology Platform was established in June 2004. Its aim was to bring together key players in the Embedded Computing arena across the entire spectrum of industrial sectors by 17 major companies.
