About his election

as President of ARTEMIS Industry Association, Prof. Daembkes stated:
“ARTEMIS is a
proven concept for R&D actors in Embedded Systems. The

Industry Association represents an influential
network of more than 200 members from all over Europe


facing the next step. At the moment we are
in the middle of promoting
a follow
-
up programme and
having discussions with the Commission, key
-
members of the European Parliament and Member States. This is
a

very interesting phase because it
gives us the opportunity to
benefit from the experience
of
the

processes of the last 6 years and improve
them wher
e required. For me, this is a fascinating challenge.”


Industry faces a lot of common challenges in the field of embedded systems


particularly in safety
-
relevant areas. There is no company or research institution that can solve these problems alone. This

is
why working together with other companies and research institutes in a pre
-
competitive phase has
become more and more a priority.
About his branch
, Prof. D
a
e
m
b
kes says: “The European automotive
industry is still the global leader in innovation based o
n embedded systems. But we face challenges from
Japan and other Asian countries. This is one of our motivations for concentrating our efforts in Europe
and to exchange experiences with other industry domains such aerospace.”


Prof. Dae
m
b
kes sees much inter
est in the approach

of ARTEMIS Industry Association
, which is a
combined effort with companies, research institutes, and small and medium
-
sized enterprises, together
with the EU and national public funding authorities.
“Other programmes

do not have this combined
effort defined by all the stakeholders”
,
he says.
“In ARTEMIS
, we have a common strategic research
agenda, developed using both a top
-
down and a bottom
-
up approach, integrating all important
stakeholders in a comb
ined effort. Thi
s way, ARTEMIS

is bringing together the best of available resources
specifically on embedded systems, to achieve the focus needed to make a difference.”

About ARTEMIS

Advanced Research & Technology for Embedded Intelligence and Systems


Innovations
made possible by embedded systems make our lives healthier and more interesting, our
transport safer, and our energy use more sustainable. They are at the heart of industrial innovation and
competitiveness, creating and sustaining jobs and economic well
-
be
ing. Over 4 billion embedded
processors were sold in 2006 and the global market is worth €60 billion with annual growth rates of
14%. The economic impact in terms of jobs and growth is expected to exceed €100 billion over ten
years.

Computing technology is

facing many threats and challenges from fragmentation, globalisation and
fierce competition. In recognition of the strategic importance of embedded computing systems the
European Union launched the ARTEMIS Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) as a Joint Unde
rtaking (JU), or
public
-
private partnership, between:



The European Commission



Member States
(2
3

countries)



ARTEMIS Industry Association (a non
-
profit association with 200

members)


ARTEMIS aims to tackle the research and structural challenges faced
by European industry by defining
and implementing a coherent research agenda for embedded computing systems. Its ambition is to help
European industry consolidate and reinforce its world leadership in embedded computing technologies.

The ARTEMIS Industry
Association represents the research community including industry (large, small
and medium sized companies), universities and research institutes. It continues the work of the
European Technology Platform and is therefore responsible for the ARTEMIS
-
ETP Str
ategic Research
Agenda set up by the European Technology Platform in March 2006.

The ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking is a Brussels based organisation legally established in February 2008 and
gaining autonomy in October 2009. It is managed by an Executive Directo
r. The ARTEMIS Joint
Undertaking adopts a commonly agreed research agenda closely following the recommendations of the
Strategic Research Agenda developed by the ARTEMIS Technology Platform.
