The mission of the EU-funded TETRAMAX innovation action is to build on three activity lines in the domain of Customized Low-Energy Computing (CLEC) for Cyber-Physical Systems and the Internet of Things: (1) stimulating, co-funding, and evaluating different cross-border Technology Transfer Experiments (TTX) via innovative CLEC technologies to first-time users and broad markets in European ICT industries, (2) building and leveraging a new European CLEC competence center network, offering technology brokerage, one-stop shop assistance and CLEC training to SMEs and mid-caps, with a clear path towards new regional Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH), and (3) paving the way towards self-sustainability.
Within the framework of a variety of open calls for application of TTX, the immediate ambition of TETRAMAX is to support 50+ industry clients all over Europe with innovative technologies, leading to an estimated revenue increase of €25m based on 50+ new or improved CLEC-based products, 10+ entirely new businesses/SMEs initiated, as well as 30+ new permanent jobs and significant cost savings in product manufacturing. Being the leading European DIH for CLEC, TETRAMAX will accelerate digitalization within European industries. In the long term, TETRAMAX will be the trailblazer towards a reinforced and sustainable ecosystem infrastructure, providing CLEC competence, services and a continuous innovation stream at European scale, yet with strong regional presence as preferred by SMEs.
The TETRAMAX project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 761349.
