The first call for Bilateral Technology Transfer Experiments (TTX) addressed innovation projects between two European partners in the domain of customized and low-energy computing for cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things. In total, 31 eligible TTX proposals were submitted for this first call by February 28th, 2018.
“With 30+ proposal submissions received, I´m glad we are continuing the success story of the previous TETRACOM project and once again prove the existence of a European technology transfer market in our community”, says Rainer Leupers, TETRAMAX coordinator.
External experts have thoroughly evaluated all proposals to ensure they are in line with the TETRAMAX competences and fulfil the experiment requirements. Six promising experiments were selected. TETRAMAX has allocated €235.794 of financial support for these first TTX.
Applicants were, amongst other things, required to match different European partners from different countries. We are excited to see that our first call already covers a significant part of the European countries. (see map)
There is also quite a diversity in market sectors, improving issues such as preservation of foods in the food industry, gardening methods in the agricultural industry, emergency services in the public sector and processing solutions or technology hardware industry. The experiments will have an impact in different areas, not only in industrial processes, such as energy efficiency, a new product line of faster and more accurate products, but also a social and economic impact because of better services, job creation and increased revenue.

A new call for Bilateral TTX will be launched in October 2018.
TETRAMAX is a new Horizon 2020 innovation action and will provide an implementation of the European Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE) initiative in the domain of customized and low-energy computing for cyber physical systems and the internet of things. The total budget of the TETRAMAX project is 7M€ and is coordinated by RWTH Aachen University, with 23 partners, covering almost all EU countries.
TETRAMAX was launched in Sep 2017 and will run for four years.
