In this video, Simona Laza shares the Excillum AB experience of participating in the MADEin4 ECSEL JU (now KDT JU) and FA4.0 PENTA-Euripides2 projects.  Simona Laza highlights the importance of relationship building within the consortia and gives advice on how to get the funding for the RD&I project. Among the possibilities offered when joining AENEAS as a member, she stresses on the opportunity to participate in co-organised networking events, thanks to which Excillum AB joined the ECSEL and PENTA-Euripides2 projects consortia.

“A big benefit is that customers learn about us… but they learn about us as a company, as our culture, and about us as a person”, – mentions Simona Laza when speaking about what Excillum AB gains from participating in the collaborative projects.
