On 25-26 October, the ITEA & ARTEMIS Co-summit 2011 was held in the Scandic Marina Congress Center in Helsinki, Finland. It was the 4th edition of the Co-summit, expecting over 600 participants from industry, academia, public authorities and press.
Once again the project exhibitions of ITEA and ARTEMIS were the pivotal elements of the event with over 75 innovative and market-oriented R&D projects showcasing themselves. This year, the exhibitions also had a direct link to the theme with a special focus area on clean technologies. The plenary programme and parallel sessions were geared to the Co-summit 2011 theme as well. Furthermore, the programme included plenary family sessions of ITEA & ARTEMIS and presentations of the Achievement Award 2011 nominees.
Cross border cooperation is key
ITEA and ARTEMIS are different instruments but with one mission: strengthening and improving Europe’s competitiveness and the well-being of European society through ICT-based innovation under the leadership of European industry. Addressing societal challenges such as healthcare and wellbeing, mobility, security, sustainability and efficient resource and energy management is deeply rooted in the programmes’ ambitions for the coming decade. These societal challenges need a multidisciplinary co-operative approach across borders in the broadest sense; cooperation between organisations, countries, value chains, technologies, application domains, industries, clusters and disciplines. This year’s theme emphasised this: cross-border cooperation for clean technologies.
