During the last decade, European Technology Platforms (ETPs) have played a major role in mobilizing research resources, technological development and innovation in order to establish long-term strategic agendas search and development that the European Commission is based. These strategic agendas identify key technologies with significant economic and social impact for the next twenty years. The organization and mission of PTEs were reviewed and adapted to target the “Horizon 2020” program, which will significantly strengthen and expand the industrial and technological power in Europe. Meanwhile, Technology Platforms (PT) have been created in other parts of the world with the aim of facilitating collaboration between European countries and other countries around common research themes.
