Boosting development and adoption of cyber physical systems

Boost and sustain the digitisation of the European industry by strengthening competitiveness in cyber physical systems (CPS)

FED4SAE

Digital Catapult is the UK hub for FED4SAE, that is part of a network of innovation hubs across Europe that boost and sustain the digitisation of the European industry by strengthening competitiveness in cyber physical systems (CPS), those that integrate physical and computer based processes, and embedded system markets.

FED4SAE is funded by the EU as part of its Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It supports startups, scaleups and mid-cap companies to:

  • Build new products and services enabled by CPS.
  • Establish innovator-supplier cross-border partnerships.

Working with a consortium including Thales, Intel, STMicroelectronics, AVL and leading European research institutions, the initiative is running a series of three open calls to find the most innovative and commercial solution ideas.

Selected innovators will receive:

  • Up to €60k in financial support to help fund application experiments.
  • Access to leading edge CPS platforms, building blocks and associated technical expertise.
  • Business case support.

In addition, there may be the potential to access additional funding for full commercialisation.

FED4SAE facilitates the development of new CPS solutions in five main application domains: smart health, smart city, smart manufacturing, smart mobility and smart transportation. It will help:

  • Deliver innovative CPS ideas to companies from every sector by leveraging the resources, know-how and cutting-edge technologies of some of Europe’s top research institutes and leading industrial companies.
  • Support companies with business modelling, market insights, and access to funding along the way from the conceptual design stage, to market launch.
  • Link businesses to users and suppliers across value chains throughout Europe.

Digital Catapult is supporting successful applicants in three key ways:

  • Offering technology support and access to our low power wide area network testbed.
  • Providing product development coaching.
  • Supporting participants to establish pan-European relationships with suppliers and customers.
  • Helping participants access further funding via our investor network.
