Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership – Austria
ECSEL-Austria is an industry-driven national research, development and innovation platform representing the technology areas of micro- and nanoelectronics, embedded systems and systems integration.
Founded by the former technology platforms ARTEMIS-Austria (embedded software and software architecture) and ENIAC-Austria (micro- and nanoelectronics) in 2013, it was enlarged by the areas of “systems and systems architecture”, “framework conditions and visibility” and “network and network development” in 2014.
Embedded Software &
Focus on processes, methods, tools and platforms, reference designs and architectures for software and/or control-intensive embedded/cyber-physical systems, addressing seamless connectivity and interoperability, functional safety, high availability, and security for professional and consumer type applications, and connected services
Focus on design technologies, process and integration, equipment, materials and manufacturing for micro- and nanoelectronics while targeting miniaturisation, diversification and differentiation, heterogeneous integration
Focus on multi-disciplinary approaches for smart systems, supported by developments in holistic design and advanced manufacturing to realise self-reliant and adaptable smart systems having sophisticated interfaces and offering complex functionalities based on e.g. the seamless integration of sensing, actuating, processing, energy provision and networking
Framework Conditions and Visibility
Focus on strengthening the common approach of the actors, increasing the visibility of the Austrian microelectronic sector, enhance framework conditions for innovation investments for the growth and improved employment in Austria as well as Europe
Resource and Network Development in Austria
Focus on creating a platform for forging alliances, to increase the availability of resources for the sector, reaching a consensus within the sector about the main development activities and their promotion and improving the transparency of research capacities and developing an optimal setting (sector roadmap)
