Imsys was invited in the Platform-aware Model-driven Optimization of Cyber-Physical Systems (oCPS) project, a program funded by the European Commission through the program of Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions. The project brought together six key industrial players, including small and medium enterprises, as well as four top universities and one research institute to train and foster a new generation of researchers.

Started in November of 2015, the oCPS project funds fourteen PhD students to help them pursue studies at both research institutions and industry partners. The PhD Students meet on a regular basis for training and networking events, leading to collaboration between all of the involved institutions and a regular exchange of information.
