The CPSoS project is developing a roadmap for future research and innovation in cyber-physical systems of systems. This paper presents preliminary findings and proposals that are put forward as a result of broad consultations with experts from industry and academia, and through analysis of the state of the art in cyber-physical systems of systems.
