Dear web page visitor,
In the ICT sector we saw many changes recent years. When eMobility was publicly launched in 2005, the eMobility European Technology Platform focused on mobile and wireless communications with an emphasis on the lower layers. In the context of future broadband communications, fixed and mobile systems will increasingly cooperate and converging. Therefore, we are currently establishing a closer cooperation with the Photonics21 ETP, because optical communication will provide the backbone for broadband mobile systems.
ICT will increasingly be used as a key enabler for other industry sectors and areas of our society. We will contribute to societal challenges such as energy, climate change, transport, health and the ageing population. In particular, in the area of electro-mobility (electric cars), the term “eMobility” is increasingly being used to refer to the domain of electric vehicles. Therefore, the eMobility ETP changed its name to Net!Works reflecting the convergence of fixed and mobile systems, as well as, distinguishing our area from electro-mobility.
Best regards, Werner Mohr, Chairman of Net!Works ETP
