TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS                                                                              

The Technology Platforms (TP) are groupings of entities involved in a specific sector, led by industry, with the aim of defining the European Strategic Diary (SRA) on strategically and socially important subjects, in order to attain the European aims of growth, competitiveness and sustainability.

The Technology Platforms carry out a vital role in better aligning the EU's investigation priorities with industry needs. The platforms will bring together all the elements of the science-technology-industry paradigm.

The participation of universities, public research organizations, technology centres and technology, enginnering, services, and manufacturing companies guarantees that the knowledge generated by means of the investigation translate in technologies and processes and, as a result, into products and services comercializables.AGREEMENTS
