ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking Call for proposals: ARTEMIS-2013-1
Call title: ARTEMIS Call 2013
Date of Publication: 26 February 2013
ARTEMIS -“Advanced Research and Technology for Embedded Intelligence and Systems”- is the European Technology Platform for Embedded Computing Systems.
ARTEMIS is an Innovation Program around Embedded Systems. The ARTEMIS JTI on Embedded Computing Systems addresses the design, development and deployment of ubiquitous, interoperable and cost-effective, powerful, safe and secure electronics and software systems.
3.1.1 Reference designs and architectures
The objective is the creation of an energy efficient generic platform and a suite of abstract components with which new developments in different application domains can be engineered with minimal effort.
3.1.2 Seamless connectivity and interoperability
3.1.3 Design methods and tools
3.1.4 Foundational research topics
In order to focus the research towards concrete instantiations of these Application Contexts, the ARTEMIS-JU MASP and Research Agenda (RA) defines eight „sub-programmes‟ of research into both technologies and applications. In the present call only the following ASPs are open:
ASP1: Methods and processes for safety-relevant embedded systems
The overall aim of this sub-programme is to enhance the quality of services and products in strategic European industrial sectors and to decrease fatalities and injuries by building cost-efficient processes and methods supporting the development and operation of safety enabling embedded systems.
The aim is to achieve technological breakthroughs in four research areas:
– Requirement Management
– Architecture Modelling and Exploration
– Analysis Methods
– Component Based Design, particularly building reliable systems out of unreliable components
ASP2: Embedded Systems for Healthcare and Wellbeing
The aim of this subprogram is to achieve product innovation and technological breakthroughs in these research areas:
1. Care at home and everywhere,
2. Reduced hospitalization time with novel therapeutic solutions
3. Early diagnosis and prevention
4. Image guided Intervention and Therapy
5. Clinical Decision support systems
ASP3: Embedded Systems in Smart environments
The overall goal of ASP3 is to provide methods, tools, technology and models with which developers will be able to build “smart environments” of smart and heterogeneous devices interacting with each other and with the environment, and cooperating together to provide a foundation for rapid local applications and service innovations. Such smart environments are characterised by dynamicity, requiring a balance between design time choices and adaptability to runtime changes and frequent, possibly autonomous, runtime reconfiguration. And the systems of smart environments must be deployable on a wide range of devices, some of which may have restricted resources.
ASP4: Embedded Systems for manufacturing and process automation
The ambition is to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing industries while maximising manufacturing efficiency. This will not only augment manufacturing employment in Europe but also assure jobs in the design, manufacturing, integration and servicing of the manufacturing equipment itself.
ASP5: Computing platforms for embedded systems
The main goal of this sub-programme is to foster integration (avoid fragmentation) of research in embedded system computing platforms by enabling an increase of cross-domain re-use and interoperation, thus leading to lower costs of ownership and wider applicability. Projects should concentrate on providing solutions for embedded system technology challenges that are common to multiple application domains.
A secondary goal is to enable massive real-time data-processing in multiple domains (image processing, signal processing, computational fluid flow …).
A further goal is to enable composition of functions over highly concurrent, complex multi-core systems with a variety of communication schemes, types of core, etc. Run-time adaptability is required so as to optimise performance and resource usage – particularly extremely low power consumption, since modern electronics is an increasingly significant contributor to global power consumption and carbon emissions.
ASP6: Embedded Systems for Security and Critical Infrastructures Protection
One target of the programme will be to enhance security of embedded systems both as stand-alone as well as networked systems, i.e. at both the node and the network level. Another target of the programme will be to develop appropriate embedded system technologies enabling protection of critical public infrastructure, such as transportation/communication/utilities networks, public building/areas, and our commercial and economic infrastructure.
In this respect, special focus will be given on developing embedded systems technologies to:
– ensure that safety is not compromised through openly communicating systems
– enable new more efficient intelligent utility infrastructures
– improve information exchange on people and goods while preserving privacy;
– provide support for critical applications, such as protection of infrastructures.
ASP8: Human-centred design of embedded systems
The main goal of this sub-programme is to develop and validate technical and methodological means to provide embedded Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI) solutions which integrate naturally into operational environments, are easy to use and understand, and support an adequate level of situation awareness.
The total Indicative Budgets for this call is: 72.292.000 €
Each project participant established in an ARTEMIS Member State thus receives two streams of funding: one from the JU (which comes from the EU budget) and one from the ARTEMIS Member State. If the participant comes from an EU Member State or a country associated to the Framework Programme that is not an ARTEMIS Member State then he receives only the JU financial contribution. The remaining support needed to cover the costs of the proposed work comes from the participants’ own resources.
The financial contribution of the ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking
For the ARTEMIS Call 2013 it will be 16.7% of eligible costs incurred by a participant to implement a project.
The financial contribution of the ARTEMIS Member States will be a certain percentage of eligible costs incurred by a participant to implement a project, which may vary according to the type of participant and the type of R&D activity as specified by each ARTEMIS Member State.
ARTEMIS Member States are:
Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom
A JU financial contribution may be given to any legal entity established in any EU Member State or FP7 Associated country (including the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre). These are presently:
Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, FYR Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom.
Deadline for submission of Full Project Proposals: 6 June 2013 at 17:00:00 (Brussels local time)
