After the success of the 2019 and 2020 joint initiatives, the two EUREKA-funded Clusters dedicated to collaborative industrial innovation – EURIPIDES² and PENTA – will once again join forces to launch a 2021 Call, which will close on 26 February 2021.

PENTA targets transnational innovation supporting National priorities in micro and nanoelectronics enabled systems and applications. EURIPIDES² focuses on smart electronic systems and smart systems integration from components to systems.

Call focus

The three European industry associations – AENEAS, ARTEMIS-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 new draft version of the 2021 Electronic Components and Systems Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (ECS-SRIA).

Four key digital technologies describing the foundational technology layers and four cross-sectional technologies focusing on transversal areas of ECS scientific research and engineering are covered. The innovations generated by these interdisciplinary cross-sectional technologies further fertilize the foundational layers, creating a necessary virtuous cycle that amplifies the effects of innovation and injects them into the key ECS application domains.
 

This ECS-SRIA drives the PENTA & EURIPIDES² programmes in the following focus areas:

ECS key applications
