EUREKA Initiative for Packaging & Integration of µDevices & Smart Electronic Systems
EURIPIDES² is a EUREKA Cluster promoting the generation of innovative, industry-driven, pre-competitive R&D projects in the area of Smart Electronic Systems.
EURIPIDES² is the innovation hub for smart sensors, smart power modules, electronic hardware platforms and more generally electronic product integration and embedded systems for automotive, aeronautics and space, security, medical electronics, smart everywhere (cities, home, wearable) and industrial electronics.
EURIPIDES² will support projects involving all actors along the value chain with a specific focus on innovative SMEs hence optimizing the impact on employment and growth.
EURIPIDES² facilitates access to national funding in Europe and beyond. As a EUREKA Cluster, the EURIPIDES² network is open to participants worldwide.
Driven by the ECS Strategic Agenda, a comprehensive technology roadmap created by three industry Association (AENEAS, ARTEMIS-IA and EPoSS) with the support of more than 270 experts from across Europe, EURIPIDES² will catalyse the creation of projects with high industrial and national interest, bringing together organisations of all sizes in trans-national teams, in order to enable and develop the Digital Economy.
EURIPIDES² is committed to enlarge its community not only in Europe but also in associated EUREKA countries and in all emerging countries.
EURIPIDES² will focus on innovative applications and marketable products that could be manufactured in Europe at competitive prices.
EURIPIDES will continue building partnerships with its European and national counterparts such as EPoSS, EUREKA Clusters, national competitiveness clusters and all actors involved in smart systems integration.
Partners involved in a EURIPIDES² project are funded directly by the Governments of their respective countries, according to national funding procedures. The EURIPIDES² website provides the contact details for Public Authorities (EURIPIDAC) that support and coordinate the funding of EURIPIDES² projects. Those are the people you need to be in touch with at every stage of preparing your proposal in order to increase the chances of a successful proposal. Funding rates, eligibility rules and national consortia for each country are also available.
2020 PENTA/EURIPIDES² synchronised call
After the success of the 2019 joint initiative, EURIPIDES² and PENTA, are joining forces again to launch a second 2020 synchronised call in a two-step approach, to maximise the chances for success and avoid unnecessary time consuming efforts in setting up projects.
