European Expert Workshop on Reliability of Electronics and Smart Systems

EuWoRel annualy brings together reliability experts in electronics and smart systems and representatives from national and European funding agencies for an two-day technical workshop and networking. It is an EPoSS working group Key Technologies event organized by RISE IVF, IMEC, and Fraunhofer ENAS. The ninth annual meeting took place in 2021

EuWoRel is an annual two-day workshop with about 30 participants where day one focuses on technical presentations along the three directions of reliability research:

  1. Improvement in the comprehensiveness and efficiency of experimental reliability tests and analysis methods for discovering and characterizing the physics of failure
  2. Speeding up the reliability assessment by applying virtual techniques based on fully calibrated and validated numerical simulation approaches
  3. Prevention of any unexpected failure by the prognostic health management (PHM) strategy using AI & digital twin principles for triggering maintenance on demand

Day two is dedicated to presentations of ongoing projects and brokerage activities for project proposals. In addition to general networking each of the EuWoRel events has a focus topic, to which it has generated effective results by dedicated group discussions:

  • In 2013, we started with the discussion of the 'EPoSS White Paper on Smart Systems Reliability', which finally was presented to the European Commission. Since then, reliability has been given good attention in all the European calls on ICT & ECSEL.
  • In 2014, we discussed the Roadmap 'Smart Systems for Automated Driving'. Result: More support for research on reliability testing, numerical simulation, and functional safety of electronics also from ERTRAC, the leading EU organization for automotive research coordination. 
  • In 2015, we brainstormed on the 'Reliability and Functional Safety' chapter of the update to the EPoSS Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), which serves as a basis for the ICT & EGVIa calls of 2017-20.
  • In 2016, our focus was set on Prognostic Health Management (PHM) methods. Our metro map like list of priority actions opened the door to funding for PHM research in EU and national schemes.
  • In 2017, we worked on the specific action items for four chapters of the European ECS SRA: Systems Integration, Reliability, Transport/Mobility, and Energy. The ECS SRA is now the main reference document for the research on electronics in the EU.
  • In 2018, we reviewed the ongoing research projects and provided input for the 2019 calls (EU & nation-al).
  • In 2019, we created input to several chapters of the EPoSS-ID document (Reliability, Integration, Mobili-ty etc.), which now goes into the ECS SRIA 2021
  • In 2020, we met virtually and became part of the Pan-European Network on Reliability of ECS established with the 100 M€ ECSEL project iRel4.0
  • The 2021 EuWoRel was held as a physical event. Results were presented from ECSEL-IA iRel4.0 which has successfully completed its 1st year of research on Intelligent Reliability for electronics and smart systems. The opportunities for reliability within Horizon Europe was also presented and discussed.
  • EuWorel 2022 will be held 8-9 September at Fraunhofer Forum in Berlin, See flyer for themes of the workshop.
