The Strategic Management Board leads the scientific policy of the Network of Excellence. It is the main decision-making body, and takes the major initiatives for implementing the Joint Programme of Activities.
The ArtistDesign NoE has 32 contractual core partners, and a large number of ’affiliated’, non-contractual partners actively participating.
The consortium is structured by research areas, called ’Clusters’, which reflect the following elements from of the embedded systems design flow, which is composed of the following cooperating activities, starting with requirements capture and leading to implementation. These activities must be well coordinated, and supported by tools and methods to ensure satisfactory levels of productivity and quality.
Affiliated partners are not core members in the consortium, but may occasionally receive support for travelling to ArtistDesign meetings, and actively contribute to the implementation of the Joint Programme of Activities (JPA). These affiliated partners include industrial, SME, academic, and international affiliates, listed in this section.
Almost all of these partners participate on a regular basis in one or more ArtistDesign technical events. We have also had a very large number of participants from the wider research and industrial communities, who are not listed officially.
