Electronics JTIs in wider merger

Ecsel, the future Joint Technology Initiative on electronic components and systems resulting from the merger of the existing JTIs Eniac and Artemis, is to include a third component on smart systems integration, called EPoSS.

Eniac and Artemis are public-private partnerships focussed respectively on micro- and nanoeletronics—i.e. hardware—and embedded computing systems—i.e. software. EPoSS is a European Technology Platform, a group led by industry that provides R&D policy input to the European Commission on smart systems integration.

The Commission has been discussing this merger with those involved since late 2011, a Commission spokesman says. Then in April last year, the three entities produced a joint research agenda at the Commission’s request. Thanks to the merger, “component suppliers will benefit from the development of advanced/smart systems and these system providers will have access to smarter components,” the spokesman adds.
