The first edition of the Synchronised Call between EURIPIDES² and PENTA, two EUREKA clusters, meets a great success : 25 project outlines submitted, 232M€ eligible costs, 16 countries and 42% SME participation.
This initiative shows the importance of involving a larger innovation ecosystem which benefits from a broader range of funding countries.
With common project management processes and tools and an increased support, the Electronic Components and Systems community also benefits from a simplified funding system.
EURIPIDES² is a EUREKA Cluster promoting the generation of innovative, industry-driven, pre-competitive R&D projects in the area of Smart Electronic Systems.EURIPIDES² is the innovation hub for smart sensors, smart power modules, electronic hardware platforms and more generally electronic product integration and embedded systems for automotive, aeronautics and space, security, medical electronics, smart everywhere (cities, home, wearable) and industrial electronics.EURIPIDES² facilitates access to national funding in Europe and beyond. As a EUREKA Cluster, the network is open to participants worldwide.
