We are a consortium of nine partners, all with world-class expertise in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) engineering, linked together into a network of CPS design centres. Together we have provided funding and support to businesses across Europe working in technology and engineering. Sign up on the left to benefit from updates on the experimental work that we've funded, and to hear about networking events where you can meet other businesses working in this field.
We primarily support businesses by funding experiments. CPSE Labs fund a number of research experiments designed by businesses (and other organisations) working in a variety of technology and engineering domains. We fund experiments which develop CPSs, and are focused and fast-track. They have explicit objectives to clearly improve the business's ability to innovate, with specific criteria in terms of technology use and overall objective.
Each of our experiments is attached to one of our six design centres. The design centres in CPSE Labs are state-of-the-art research centres in various locations across Europe. Each has an international reputation for excellence in technology and/or engineering. CPSE Labs builds upon these existing R&D centres and turns these already excellent regional clusters into world-class hotspots. In addition to funding, experiments gain access to high quality world class expertise from our design centres, including support and advice from specialist research staff.
Our world-class design centres have a range of complementary expertise. Together they develop and maintain a common strategic innovation agenda for building up novel and complete industrial value chains. Experience gained from experiments, validation results, and best practices are developed by CPSE Labs into cross-cutting engineering principles for integrating software and hardware elements. This creates a body of knowledge that benefits participating experimenters.
In addition, CPSE Labs is developing a marketplace to provide an open forum for sharing platforms, architectures, and software tools for engineering of dependable and trustworthy cyber-physical systems. Our ultimate goal is to establish an engineering framework which sets a world-wide standard for CPS.
