TETRAMAX focuses on the domain of customized low energy computing (CLEC) for Cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things within the framework of the European "Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE)" initiative.

The project aims to boost innovation by stimulating, organizing and evaluating different kinds of technology transfer experiments (TTX). These co-funded “application experiments” connect SMEs and mid-caps with international academics, resulting in low-risk industrial adoption of novel computing technologies. Additionally, building and leveraging a European CLEC competence center network will increase the exchange of technologies and solutions, hence increasing TTX opportunities. By providing sufficient seed funding, TETRAMAX can enable the long-term and self-sustainability of the EU network of competence centers.

Moreover, in the long term, TETRAMAX will be the trailblazer towards a reinforced, profitable, 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.

In a nutshell

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 22 partners, covering almost all EU countries.

TETRAMAX was launched in Sep 2017 and will run for four years.
