TETRAMAX Newsletter, February 2018

Dear colleague,
I´m excited about the multitude of TETRAMAX activities that have been ramped up in the past few months. Our Competence Center Network already comprises 250+ nodes, providing fast access to custom/low-energy computing expertise in all EU countries. We will soon also open a dedicated technology brokerage portal with efficient search facilities for locating transfer partners. Contact Wei Jan Wang ( from Chalmers for details.
You might have come across TETRAMAX also at one of the numerous recent events organized by our project team. As one highlight, let me just mention here the TISU workshop at the HiPEAC 2018 Conference in Manchester. Thanks to Koen Bertels from TU Delft!
In order to receive up to €50,000 funding for your tech transfer experiments (TTX), you can still respond to our open call for bilateral TTX until Feb 28. By that date, we will also open our 1st call for multi-partner interdisciplinary TTX, each worth up to  â‚¬100,000 – stay tuned.
In March, TETRAMAX will have a massive presence at the DATE conference, incl. a joint exhibition booth with our partner network HiPEAC and a special session on tech transfer best practices. Both are perfect occasions to discuss with the project team how we can help together in faster digitisation of European industries.
Hope to meet many of you soon in Dresden!

The open call for bilateral Technology Transfer Experiments focuses on short-term application experiments in the domain of Customized Low-Energy Computing, between one academic and one industry partner from two different EU countries or associated countries; in justified cases, both partners can be SMEs. 
More information:

COMING SOON: 28-02-2018 
Open Call:  
Value Chain Oriented and Interdisciplinary Technology Transfer Experiments

This is a call for mid-term (12-18 months) application experiments, implemented between three or more partners (in case a multidisciplinary collaboration is needed) from at least two different EU countries.

This Technology Transfer Experiment (TTX) type brings together:

  • PROVIDING PARTNER: at least one partner providing a particular novel Customized Low-energy Computing hardware or software technology from research.
  • OEM PARTNER:  testing and deploying the technology in its dedicated, possibly even non-tech, products with its end customers.
  • PRODUCTIZATION PARTNER: another partner productizing this technology as a “platform” for a long-term wider market.
