European Commission EU eHealth in focus -
ENIAC and ARTEMIS public-private partnerships delivering, but need more industry and Member State commitment
ENIAC and ARTEMIS interim evaluation
The European Commission has today endorsed a report by a panel of independent experts which calls on EU industry and Member States to reinforce their support for ARTEMIS and ENIAC, two public-private partnerships (established as Joint Undertakings) for collaborative research in the fields of nanoelectronics and embedded systems (used widely in cars, smart phones, power plants and elsewhere. The experts concluded that the current partnership model is good for industry, good for Member States, and good for Europe. However, they also found that more financial resources are needed from EU Member States and that industry needs to demonstrate a stronger commitment towards a European strategy if ARTEMIS and ENIAC are to realise their full potential.
[p][b]Boosting European research and development in information and communications technologies is a key objective of the Digital Agenda for Europe (see [link]http://europa.eu/rapid/pressReleasesAction.do?reference=IP/10/581&format=HTML&aged=0&language=EN&guiLanguage=nl(IP/10/581)[/link], [link]http://europa.eu/rapid/pressReleasesAction.do?reference=MEMO/10/199&format=HTML&aged=0&language=EN&guiLanguage=nl(MEMO/10/199)[/link] and [link]http://europa.eu/rapid/pressReleasesAction.do?reference=MEMO/10/200&format=HTML&aged=0&language=EN&guiLanguage=nl(MEMO/10/200)[/link].[/b][/p] [p]Commission Vice President for the Digital Agenda Neelie Kroes said "ENIAC and ARTEMIS are proving valuable for Europe's growth and competitiveness. But to continue European success in nanoelectronics and embedded systems we will need to pool more resources. Industry and EU Member States need to invest twice as much in the next three years as they have so far if we wish to accomplish our initial ambitions of €2.5-3 billion programmes."[/p] [p][link]http://europa.eu/rapid/pressReleasesAction.do?reference=IP/10/1727&format=HTML&aged=0&language=EN&guiLanguage=nl(Full press release)[/link][/p]
