The development of future systems requires a sustained research of high level to allow a miniaturization of these elements for one thing and an increased autonomy by means of "smart" electronics on the other hand.

Energy saving is also a key issue for our future which is also strongly dependent of devices efficiency, even for small power consumption. Connections with material science and information technology are the key for innovation in this topic. The proposed keynote intends to show some examples of multi-disciplinary projects and show how to combine some exiting technologies in a smart way. Electro-active polymer actuator for blood pump as well as magnetorheological fluid of diabetic shoese design will be highlighted during this presentation.
