Europe suffers from under funding by the private sector into research and development.
Artemis, one of two joint technology initiatives adopted by the Commission in May 2007, had managed to attract 450M EUR and 10 of the top 25 European enterprise investors in R&D. Artemis was supposed to give Europe a strong competitive advantage for embedded systems.
Issues which were be touched upon in this breakfast by the speakers were: how was the extensive funding for Artemis achieved? What were the challenges and success factors? And what did private investors seek in public private partnerships?
