Attendance of the Institut de Microelectrònica de Barcelona to the EPoSS Annual Forum
Researchers of the Institut de Microelectrònica de Barcelona (IMB-CNM-CSIC) have attended the EPoSS Annual Forum 2019, held in San Sebastian on 16-17 October 2019. This forum brings together all researchers and companies addressing all demands related to the automated and sustainable production of and by Smart Integrated Systems. The IMB-CNM researchers Carles Cane, Lluís Fonseca, Stella Vallejos and Cecilia Jimenez attended the forum.
The Institute, which is member of the EPoSS initiative, was present on the official agenda with some presentations. Carles Cané, presented the project “Smart Systems for Sensing and Network Inspection in Utilities (SENIX)” focused on Utilities 4.0 and founded by ACCIO, the Agency for Business Competitiveness of Catalonia. On the other hand, Cecilia Jimenez presented the project “Wecare” devoted to multisensing wearable technology for sweat biomonitoring” funded by Swiss National Science Foundation.
Under the title “MiSSIon Smart Systems”, the EPoSS Annual Forum 2019 addressed all demands related to the automated and sustainable production of and by Smart Integrated Systems. EPoSS (European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration) is an industry-driven policy initiative defining R&D and innovation needs as well as policy requirements related to Smart Systems Integration (SSI) and integrated Micro- and Nanosystems. EPoSS brings together European private and public stakeholders in order to create an enduring basis for structuring initiatives, for coordinating and bundling efforts, for setting-up sustainable structures of a European Research Area on Smart Systems Integration. EPoSS embraces all key players, public and private, in the entire value chain.
