Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
Our society is facing both energy and competitiveness challenges. These challenges are tightly linked and require new dynamic interactions between energy producers and energy consumers, between machines, between systems, between people and systems, etc. Cooperative automation is the key for these dynamic interactions and is enabled by the technology developed around the Internet of Things and Service Oriented Architectures.The objective of the Arrowhead project is to address the technical and applicative challenges associated to cooperative automation:1) Provide a technical framework adapted in terms of functions and performances.2) Propose solutions for integration with legacy systems.3) Implement and evaluate the cooperative automation through real experimentations in applicative domains: electro-mobility, smart buildings, infrastructures and smart cities, industrial production, energy production and energy virtual market.4) Point out the accessible innovations thanks to new services.5) Lead the way to further standardization work.
