PENTA exists to provide the Electronic Systems & Components community a specific support capability to address the huge challenges created by the rapid development of the global digital economy. 

Our vision is to offer a programme that is open to all the elements of the ECS Community; Large Enterprise, SME’s, RTO’s and Universities. PENTA is a flexible, easy to use, nationally supported, funding instrument; stimulating collaborative innovation that is aligned to industrial and funding country priorities.

The PENTA mission is to use that tool to support collaborative projects in the €2-80m cost range that will create new technological innovation and, through applications, use it to accelerate economic development and meet a wide range of societal requirements.
