MESAP EUROPEAN ACTIVITIES
MESAP Community in Freiburg for EPoSS Annual Forum 2021: the story
This year EPoSS held its Annual Forum from 4 to 7 October in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. “Towards New Horizons“, 4 days dedicated to updates on Smart Systems Integration and networking opportunities. Also in the spotlight was the Smart Systems Integrated® collective trademark, owned by EPoSS and managed by MESAP at European level.
The trademark is licensed to Smart Systems Integration enabled products that are compliant with the regulation and have a TRL of 7 and above. Smart Systems Integrated® is a strategic tool to engage new members in EPoSS, and we are pleased to count among these MESAP members: Adgenera and Retuner by Orchestra, licensees of the trademark, and TecnoLab.
In addition to the normal conference programme, the EPoSS Start-up Award 2021 was held, attended by HYPE Srl and Evolvo, Italian start-ups from the MESAP ecosystem.
Finally, it was the occasion to officially announce the city that will host the annual event in 2022: see you in Turin! MESAP is proud to be the selected host partner for 2022.

The aim of the interviews is to plan activities in line with these needs within the framework of MIND4MACHINES, a European initiative supporting cross-sector and cross-border collaborations between manufacturing SMEs to improve their production processes through digital technologies.
Two calls for more than EUR 3 million are planned for spring 2022.
