ESI's strategic shared research programme addresses latest technologies for design and engineering of high-tech embedded systems. By acting as research partner, bridge and integrator, we bring together multi-disciplinary teams of academic and industrial experts to drive future high-tech solutions.

Driving high-tech solutions

With each innovation cycle, high-tech embedded systems and applications require better functionality and higher performance. This makes the technology needed to develop and specify leading edge solutions ever more complex.

It is our firm belief that designing and building the latest high-tech systems can best be achieved through the coordinated efforts of multi-disciplinary teams. By integrating academic insight with industrial application and sharing investments and risks, strategic technology challenges can be overcome more easily and quickly.

Strategic research agenda

The ESI strategic research agenda is designed to address the growing challenges that face our partners and participants by increasing the quality and predictability of high-tech embedded system design and engineering.
