ARTEMIS Industry Association strives for a leading position of Europe in Embedded Intelligence. The Association is a membership organization for the European R&I actors with more than 180 members and associates from all over Europe. The multidisciplinary nature of the membership provides an excellent network for the exchange of technology ideas, cross-domain fertilisation, as well as for large innovation initiatives.

ARTEMIS Industry Association believes that there are no sharp delineations between technologies, and that such technologies should not be considered in splendid isolation. These areas together will allow the rise of new innovative businesses that support the opportunities for value creation in several sectors that Embedded Intelligence creates. In an industrial context Cyber-Physical Systems encompasses a wider class of systems than Embedded Systems in their most narrow definition. Therefore, ARTEMIS-IA distinguishes three focus areas that together create this wider industrial context of Embedded Intelligence:

  • Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Internet of Things
  • Digital Platforms

As private partner in ECSEL Joint Undertaking, ARTEMIS-IA supports formation of consortia and initiation of project proposals for joint collaboration and creates the meeting place where key industry players and other R&D&I actors identify strategic high priority topics for collaborative R&I projects.

SPICY will address the whole value chain until the implementation of manufacturing.

The success of electric vehicles in the mass market depends on the development of high-energy batteries at a competitive price. The research efforts of the past decade have continuously improved the energy densities of batteries, yet electric vehicles have only gradually made their way into the market. A combined surge in both consumer demand and industrial “push” is now on the verge of prompting a significant market uptake.

The objective of eCAIMAN is to bring European expertise together to develop an automotive Li-Ion battery cell that can be produced in Europe. The consortium consists of several highly experienced industrial partners and research organizations. Together we will develop a more powerful battery by modifying and improving individual components and technologies to result in a significant overall improvement of the cell. Key innovations include a 5V high-voltage spinel, a high-capacity composite anode, and a stable high-voltage electrolyte. Their cumulative effect should improve total cell capacity by at least 20%. The project will also investigate the integration in light, passenger, and heavy duty vehicles.

The vision of this FiveVB project is to push European’s Lithium battery industry and academia to take over a leading role in the development and manufacturing of Lithium Ion cells and materials to provide cost and performance competitive Lithium Ion cells and batteries to European and Non-European Automotive Industry.

The success of electric vehicles in the mass market depends on the development of high-energy batteries at a competitive price. The research efforts of the past decade have continuously improved the energy densities of batteries, yet electric vehicles have only gradually made their way into the market. A combined surge in both consumer demand and industrial “push” is now on the verge of prompting a significant market uptake.

The objective of eCAIMAN is to bring European expertise together to develop an automotive Li-Ion battery cell that can be produced in Europe. The consortium consists of several highly experienced industrial partners and research organizations. Together we will develop a more powerful battery by modifying and improving individual components and technologies to result in a significant overall improvement of the cell. Key innovations include a 5V high-voltage spinel, a high-capacity composite anode, and a stable high-voltage electrolyte. Their cumulative effect should improve total cell capacity by at least 20%. The project will also investigate the integration in light, passenger, and heavy duty vehicles.

ARTEMIS Industry Association strives for a leading position of Europe in Embedded Intelligence. The Association is a membership organization for the European R&I actors with more than 180 members and associates from all over Europe. The multidisciplinary nature of the membership provides an excellent network for the exchange of technology ideas, cross-domain fertilisation, as well as for large innovation initiatives.

ARTEMIS Industry Association believes that there are no sharp delineations between technologies, and that such technologies should not be considered in splendid isolation. These areas together will allow the rise of new innovative businesses that support the opportunities for value creation in several sectors that Embedded Intelligence creates. In an industrial context Cyber-Physical Systems encompasses a wider class of systems than Embedded Systems in their most narrow definition. Therefore, ARTEMIS-IA distinguishes three focus areas that together create this wider industrial context of Embedded Intelligence:

  • Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Internet of Things
  • Digital Platforms

As private partner in ECSEL Joint Undertaking, ARTEMIS-IA supports formation of consortia and initiation of project proposals for joint collaboration and creates the meeting place where key industry players and other R&D&I actors identify strategic high priority topics for collaborative R&I projects.
