ARTEMIS Innovation Environment

ARTEMIS: an excellent network for innovation

ARTEMIS Industry Association believes that there are no sharp delineations between technologies, and that such technologies should not be considered in splendid isolation. Especially from the combinations of technologies new innovative businesses will emerge that unlock new opportunities for value creation in many industrial sectors.

ARTEMIS created an Innovation Environment to serve the industries that are active in research & development of Embedded Intelligence - and specifically the members of the Industry Association - to provide them with an excellent network for fostering innovation & the exchange of technology ideas, cross-domain fertilisation, as well as for large innovation initiatives and standardisation.

ARTEMIS European Technology Platform

ARTEMIS is the European Technology Platform (ETP) on Embedded Intelligence recognized by the European Commission. The ARTEMIS ETP is an industry-led stakeholder forum and is key actor in driving research and innovation, community building, knowledge transfer and European competitiveness.

The ARTEMIS ETP develops the Strategic Research and innovation Agenda (SRA) with roadmaps for action at EU and national level to be supported by both private and public funding. ARTEMIS mobilizes its stakeholders to deliver on agreed research priorities and align priorities and  information across the EU.

ARTEMIS Industry Association implements the ARTEMIS SRA and its vision and mission focused on Embedded Intelligence, among others by setting up the ARTEMIS Working Groups, the ARTEMIS CoIE and Tool Platform recognition Labels, Community building events and other cooperation activities.

ARTEMIS Innovation Environment: in-depth support for our industry.

ARTEMIS Working Groups

ARTEMIS Industry Association created several Working Groups, consisting of a team of experts that join forces to further support the research & innovation (R&I) of Embedded Intelligent Systems.

How the Working Groups came to be

The background of the ARTEMIS Working Groups goes back to the first ARTEMIS Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) issued in 2006. The holistic approach of the SRA to R&I in Embedded Intelligent Systems also required the support of activities outside the range of what could be executed in the R&I projects. To implement such activities, the ARTEMIS-IA Steering Board established several Working Groups.

If you are interested in joining a Working Group, please contact the ARTEMIS-IA office.

ECSEL Joint Undertaking

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. Three industry associations (including ARTEMIS Industry Association) represent actors from the areas of Micro-/Nanoelectronics, Embedded Intelligent Systems, and Smart Systems. The ECSEL-JU programme features innovation and competitive projects in several key application areas and crucial key enabling technology areas (essential capabilities).

Strategic decisions are made by the ECSEL Joint Undertaking Governing Board, comprising private members (ARTEMIS Industry Association, AENEAS and EPoSS), participating states and the European Commission. R&I funding decisions are based on independent expert evaluation and synergies with national priorities, and are made by the Public Authorities Board, comprising representatives of the participating states and associated countries and the European Commission.


The cooperation with the European Technology Platforms (ETPs) AENEAS/ENIAC and EPoSS started officially in 2012. At the request of the European Commission, a common high level SRIA (Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda) was written together with AENEAS (ENIAC ETP) and EPoSS ETP, to outline a common view of the electronic components and systems industry in Europe. Based on this SRIA, the European Commission developed ideas to create an integrated successor under Horizon 2020 of both the ENIAC and ARTEMIS Joint Undertakings, also integrating the EPoSS ETP into this overall Joint Undertaking in the domain of electronic components and systems. This ECSEL-JU has been established by Council Regulation on 27 June 2014. Today, the three associations together are closely cooperating as private partners in this ECSEL-JU, a 5 Billon Euro R&I initiative under the umbrella of Horizon2020.

Another example is the Private Member Board of the ECSEL-JU. This is a cooperation between the ECSEL Joint Undertaking, AENEAS, ARTEMIS Industry Association and EPoSS, contributing to establish a strategy for the upcoming ECSEL Calls.


A long lasting cooperation between ARTEMIS Industry Association and ITEA started already with the back-to-back ITEA Symposium / ARTEMIS Autumn event of 2008. Since there is a large common industry community in both programmes, this co-organised event became a success and was successively integrated into a two-day Co-Summit in 2010. Today, we can look back on six successful Co-Summit events, of which the last three attracted between 650 and 700 participants, showing the relevance of the event for both programmes. A similar common bi-annual event is currently under construction and will premiere in 2017.

Another continuous cooperation with ITEA was started in 2011 under the name “High level Umbrella”, where the positioning of both programmes was documented. In 2012 a shared Vision2030 was written, looking 20 years ahead. In 2013 this Vision2030 was extended with an economic outlook on the impact of software and embedded systems on industry in Europe. This cooperation between ARTEMIS and ITEA was from its beginning strongly supported by the Public Authorities of the participating countries.

ARTEMIS Industry Association co-established the ARTEMIS-ITEA Coordination Committee (AICC), to maintain a continuous open dialogue with the EUREKA ITEA cluster, which has already resulted in:

  • six annual Co-summit Events
  • shared document on the future of ICT in Europe: High-Level Vision 2030


ARTEMIS Industry Association is one of the founding members of AIOTI, the Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation. Since IoT is one of the focus areas of ARTEMIS-IA, becoming member of AOITI was a logical step to broaden our community's possibilities for networking and R&I within the IoT area.

  • Alliance
  • Initiated by the European Commission
  • Website:

The Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation (AIOTI) was initiated by the European Commission in order to develop and support the dialogue and interaction among the Internet of Things (IoT) various players in Europe. The overall goal of the AlOTI is the creation of a dynamic European IoT ecosystem to unleash the potentials of the IoT.

European Commission

ARTEMIS is a European Technology Platform which is established by the European Commission and executed by the Industry Association. European Technology Platforms (ETPs) are industry-led stakeholder fora recognised by the European Commission as key actors in driving innovation, knowledge transfer and European competitiveness.

The ARTEMIS ETP develops research and innovation agendas and roadmaps for action at European and national level, to be supported by both private and public funding. ARTEMIS-IA mobilises stakeholders to deliver on agreed priorities and share information across the EU. By working effectively together, ARTEMIS-IA also helps to deliver solutions to major challenges of key concern to citizens such as the ageing society, the environment and food and energy security.

ARTEMIS-IA often assists the commission in organising events (Road2CPS day & Co-summit) and promoting Embedded Intelligence projects.

ARTEMIS cooperations

To achieve our goal together

Cooperation is one of the focus points of ARTEMIS Industry Association, which was established by companies that decided to cooperate on bringing the message of the need for more structural R&I on Embedded Intelligent Systems to a larger scale.

Of course, the whole ARTEMIS model is based on gaining impact of Embedded Intelligent Systems on a European level through cooperative R&I projects.

A new tri-partite cooperation model was the foundation for Industry, European Commission and the European countries to leverage the efforts by a unified pan-European strategy for Embedded Intelligent Systems R&I.

One of the underlying strategic approaches was “think big” to gain “impact” with the target to create sustainable impact of the programme for Europe and the European industry.

Based on this approach, ARTEMIS and ARTEMIS Industry Association started to build large projects, culminating in later calls to ARTEMIS Innovation Pilot Project, huge projects with an approximate target size of 100 partners/100MEuro.
