Announcement - EC invests 2.5 billion in embedded computer systems


Ninety-eight percent of computing devices are embedded electronic equipment and machines. Over four billion embedded processors were sold last year and the global market is worth € 60 billion with annual growth rates of 14 percent. Forecasts predict more than 16 billion embedded devices by 2010 and over 40 billion by 2020.

The European Commission last week launched a major Joint Technology Initiative as part of ARTEMIS.

With an unprecedented investment of € 2.5 billion, this initiative addresses embedded or “pervasive” computer systems that—while running almost unnoticed by users—improve the performance of all kinds of machines: from cars, planes and phones, to factories, washing machines and televisions.

“Invisible computers embedded in all devices of industrial application can have a tremendously positive impact on Europe’s economy,” said Viviane Reding, EU Commissioner for Information Society and Media.

“I am grateful to the European Parliament and to the Council of Ministers for having given their full support to this new form of pooling research efforts in Europe.”

Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Hungary, the Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom currently participate in ARTEMIS.
