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.
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 common Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) 2020. This common framework for Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) identifies 10 chapters which together address the 5 essential capabilities required to meet the 5 key application needs, and the 11th chapter addressing the long-term vision.
This ECS-SRA drives the PENTA & EURIPIDES² programmes in the following focus areas:
PENTA and EURIPIDES² seek to support the creation of partnerships along the Electronics Components and Systems value chain, enabling the transition from research to commercial exploitation (TRL 2-8).
The PO gives a short overview of a project, mainly to describe the project goals, innovation, targeted business impact and consortium. Project Outlines are positively evaluated are invited for the second stage.
The FPP describes the project plan and how the project will be executed and managed. Approved FPPs will receive the PENTA and/or EURIPIDES² label.
