On November 20th to November 22nd 2018, the European Forum for Electronic Components and Systems (EFECS) took place in Brussels. The international forum focused on ‘Our Digital Future’ along the Electronic Components and Systems value chain in Europe and also featured an exhibition booth of Platform4CPS and the R&D results of the DEIS project.
The organizers of this event (AENEAS, ARTEMIS-IA, EPoSS, ECSEL Joint Undertaking and the European Commission) joined forces to bring all stakeholders together to:
· Share the vision and strategies of industry leaders
· Set the future direction for technical innovation in Europe
· Encourage collaborative projects across the ECS Community
· Demonstrate innovative activities across the sector
During the conference days and in between the different talks the approximately 200 attending ECS R&D actors had the opportunity to brainstorm and discuss the DEIS approaches and research activities with the DEIS representatives.
