Smart System Integration Community

The Smart System Integration Community is set-up to actively solicit input, obtain feedback and give wider support to actors along the value chain.

"Smart Systems" are defined as in the EPoSS Strategic Research Agenda 2013:

"Smart Systems are self-sufficient intelligent technical systems or subsystems with advanced functionality, enabled by underlying micro- nano- and bio-systems and other components."
