themes, and depending on the availability of the
experts we had mixed populations in these
working groups. We decided on chapter leaders
and then they were writing these chapters.”
However, in the 2014 programme, there were
issues over the use of the budget and the work
plans to be adopted. In the projects resulting
from the first two parallel calls last year, only
around 20% of funding was made available to
cyber-physical systems-related activities.
Acknowledging the disappointment within the
ARTEMIS community, Daembkes made clear
that ARTEMIS-IA efforts are on-going to ensure
that more resources are devoted in the future.
Sending out the message
Communicating the potential impact and the
importance of embedded systems is a priority.
When applying for funding, the complexity of
projects in this arena presents a clear
challenge. The ARTEMIS-IA has learnt from this
experience, with efforts coming forward to
strengthen application processes and explain
the expected impacts. Work is maturing, the

uring 2015’s ITEA ARTEMIS Co-summit, Portal sat down
with the president of the ARTEMIS Industry Association
(ARTEMIS-IA), Professor Dr Heinrich Daembkes, to
discuss topical developments around embedded and cyber-
physical systems and the work of the association.
Since the last Co-summit in 2013 there have been big changes for
ARTEMIS. In 2014, the joint undertaking (JU) merged into the newly
created Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership
(ECSEL) JU. However, the ARTEMIS-IA continues as a private partner in
ECSEL. Daembkes stressed that all on-going projects will continue to be
supported and cared for under the new organisational arrangement.
Being one of three private partners in ECSEL, alongside the Association
for European NanoElectronics ActivitieS and the European Technology
Platform on Smart Systems Integration, ARTEMIS-IA represents actors
from the embedded and cyber-physical systems sector. The transition,
Daembkes explained, was not very easy, and efforts persist to ensure
co-existence and the mode of co-operation, with three associations
interacting with the central JU office. He added that, in co-operation with
the other partners, a common roadmap to build input for calls in 2014
was successfully developed.
“This was done remarkably well. We joined forces and we established
common working groups between the three associations, working on
