Facilitated access to funding is an essential catalyst for stimulating collaborative Research & Development activities along the Electronics Value Chain. Many programmes exist in the micro and nanoelectronics sector 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 also an integral part of the ECSEL programme, a European initiative focussed on strategic projects, and manages PENTA, a EUREKA Cluster dedicated to micro and nanoelectronics systems & applications.

Depending on the objectives and structure of the envisaged project, other funding support tools 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.
