Coordination and Implementation of a European Strategy on Smart Systems Technologies (CEPoSS)
Start date: Jun 1, 2008, End date: Nov 30, 2010 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Microsystems will evolve in the future into integrated smart systems which are able to sense and diagnose a situation, which are predictive, and therefore are able to decide and help to decide. Smart systems address and identify each other and enable the products in which they are incorporated in to interact with the environment and with other smart systems. The CA CEPoSS will deal with Smart Systems Technologies with particular emphasis on integration matters both on sub-systems and systems level. The activities of the project are based and rely on the work done in EPoSS, the European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration and will help the platform to further develop.The objectives of CEPoSS support those of EPoSS, i.e. defining the future technology path from microsystems technology towards smart systems integration, strengthening the Smart Systems value chain in Europe, helping to realise a European Research Area in Smart Systems Integration and making European industrial and public research structures in this sector the most competitive in the world.Hence, CEPoSS proposes new and additional functions and tasks to be carried out within the EPoSS aiming at coordinating better European RandD efforts, setting priorities for industrial RandD and implementing its strategy by mobilising human and financial resources. At operational level CEPoSS will develop a new public-private partnership model based on Art. 169/171, (re-)define research and development priorities, timeframes and action plans and re-engineer its Strategic Research Agenda. It will provide recommendations to policy makers, launch bi- and multilateral pilot initiatives among member states and companies, motivate High-Tech SMEs to participate in the EPoSS activities, and increase political awareness related to the potential of new smart systems devices. For carrying out these activities the CA CEPoSS will have to provide also the necessary infrastructures and organisational backbone.
