TETRAMAX - Technology Transfer via Multinational Application Experiments

TETRAMAX is a Horizon 2020 innovation action and provides 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.

The project partially builds on experiences with the TETRACOM project during 2013-2016. TETRAMAX was launched in Sep 2017 and will run for four years.

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.

With a mission to boost innovation and bridge industries, SMEs, academics and technology providers, TETRAMAX seeks to reinforce the science, technology and business in customized low-energy computing in Europe. As a leading Digital Innovation Hub in CLEC, it facilitates digitalization for SMEs in particular, through the following services:

  • Increase technology transfer and digitalization projects by offering funding;

  • Supporting the development of innovative solutions for industry needs;

  • Create collaborations between leading industries, SMEs and innovation partners through a brokerage network;

  • Build awareness on CLEC-technology and prototypes;

  • Facilitate development of relevant skills and competences in CLEC.
