RACE Network RFID

ERCIM is coordinating the "RACE Network RFID", designed to become a federating platform to the benefit of all European Stakeholders in the development, adoption and usage of RFID. The network started in March 2009 and gathers already 25 partners from 17 EU member states including the ERCIM members Fraunhofer (IML) and VTT, and ETSI as a Work Package leader.
The ambitious aim of the network is to:

  • Create a federating platform to the benefit of all European stakeholders in the development, adoption and usage of RFID.
  • Position the European Union as a world leader in RFID excellence.
  • Establish the market position for RFID in Europe, defining the roadmap and addressing the barriers to adoption and deployment as well as fragmentation in the market.
  • Promote best practices, case studies, reports, guidelines, events and services to increase awareness at European and national level.
