ELECTRA II - The smart world. Making Europe smarter and more competitive.

Solutions proposed by Europe’s electrical engineering and electronics industries.


‘We have been ‘good’, we have been ‘better’ now we are on our way in Europe to becoming ‘smart’. A smart society is one that is ready to face the challenges of the future, such as demographic change and developing a health system that caters for the needs of an elderly population; further shortages of ram materials and therefore the need to achieve a greater resource efficiency; a smart grid that can cope with the increased use of renewable energy sources; climate change, the shortage of energy and the consequent need to use energy more efficiently; integrated transportation infrastructures that meet the mobility demands of the next generation; a safe and secure place to live and work: and the concentration of more and more people in and around large urban areas. And of course, a society that is capable or adapting its manufacturing sector to ensure that the benefits arising from providing solutions to these challenges accrue to its economy, providing jobs and growth in Europe.
