The European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration (EPoSS) is organising a three-day event in September. After the general assembly the annual forum will contain speeches and presentations on topics such as a) smart systems integrating multiple technologies, multiple functionalities, and new or hybrid materials, b) smart systems interfacing with the human body, the environment or with one another, c) aspects of the smart systems life cycle, such as design, prototyping, manufacturing, test, reliability and recyclability. Finally, the engagement day will focus upon how Smart Systems providers can better connect with user communities.
