How can European industry become truly digital? Through a series of innovation initiatives, the European Union-funded Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE) programme supports both high- and low-tech sectors in digital value creation.
A workshop held on 13 June, organized by HiPEAC in collaboration with the European Commission, showcased results, best-practice examples and lessons learned from the programme’s innovation hubs, before highlighting themes in the Horizon 2020 ICT-04-2017 SAE call, which closes on 8 November.
This was followed by a collaboration workshop on advanced computing and cyber-physical systems (CPS) in which over 40 projects were presented, covering technical themes including next-generation servers, modelling, toolchains and methods for CPS, heterogeneous computing, real time/reliability, cloud and mixed criticality, as well as community building and roadmapping. The Commission showed how it supports intellectual property rights (IPR) management through the IPR helpdesk (www.iprhelpdesk.eu) and how the Innovation Radar is supporting innovation in Europe (http://bit.ly/Innovation_Radar).
