Facilitated access to funding is an essential catalyst for stimulating collaborative Research & Development activities along the Electronic Components and Systems Value Chain. Many programmes exist for micro and nanoelectronics components and systems and AENEAS both manages and partners with several funding instruments.
AENEAS works with large companies, SMEs, research institutes and academia to help create support programmes tailored to the needs of the consortia that have been developed.
AENEAS is a partner in the ECSEL programme, a European initiative focussing on large strategic project for ECS, and its successor the KDT (Key Digital Technologies) programme within Horizon Europe, the research and innovation framework programme of the European Commission running from 2021-2027.
AENEAS also operates PENTA and EURIPIDES², two EUREKA Clusters dedicated to micro and nanoelectronics systems & applications and smart electronic systems.
Depending on the objectives and structure of the envisaged project, other funding programmes may match the needs of the consortia members. For this reason AENEAS has built links to other Commission, EUREKA and National funding structures through the EUREKA Network, European Commission and National Governments.
AENEAS is ready to work with and support developing consortia, offering access to collaboration tools, providing strategic guidance and other support services.
