The ARTEMIS European Technology Platform (ETP) issued its first Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) in 2006 to set the scene on R&I on Embedded Intelligent Systems in Europe. The ARTEMIS Industry Association Working Group SRA presented an updated SRA in 2011, because of all new technical options and challenges. By that time it had become clear that Embedded Intelligent Systems increasingly formed a neural system of society and were therefore an essential part of the solution to our major societal challenges.
In 2013, during the preparations for ECSEL Joint Undertaking, it became clear that the SRA 2011 needed a minor update. Therefore an SRA addendum was written, in addition to the ARTEMIS SRA 2011.
In 2016, a new edition of the ARTEMIS SRA was published (ARTEMIS SRA 2016), creating a pathway to digital transformation: an opportunity for Europe. This edition focuses on providing strong technological capability over the whole value chain.
