Annual call

After the success of the 2019 and 2020 joint initiative, two EUREKA-funded Clusters dedicated to collaborative industrial innovation –EURIPIDES² and PENTA –are joining forces again to launch a new 2021 ECS Call.

The three European industry associations - AENEASARTEMIS-IA and EPoSS - representing large companies, SMEs, universities and research institutes from across the entire Electronic Components and Systems (ECS) value chain have joined together to produce a common Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) 2020. This common framework for Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&I) identifies 10 chapters which addresses the 5 essential capabilities required to meet the 5 key application needs, and the 11th chapter addressing the long-term vision.

In a two-stage procedure, the quality of the project proposal is evaluated and improved, finally leading to a selection of high quality project proposals that receive the official EURIPIDES²-PENTA label. The EURIPIDES²-PENTA label provides project partners with the possibility of applying for public funding from their national authorities.

EURIPIDES²-PENTA also operates a “FastTrack” project submission capability. In the exceptional case where a consortia and relevant Public Authorities agree on the urgency for a project to begin as soon as possible, EURIPIDES²-PENTA will initiate a Full Project Proposal (FPP) evaluation on request. For details on this process please contact the EURIPIDES²-PENTA Offices.
