What is Xecs?

Xecs is a trans-national innovation Cluster for Electronics Components and Systems (ECS). Xecs is part of Eureka, an intergovernmental network
for RD&I cooperation, involving over 45 countries globally. The Xecs Cluster has been jointly created by Industry and National Public Authorities to catalyse the sustainable digital transformation and to generate high economic and societal impact.

It is an instrument for the ECS community, designed to help build RD&I consortia, access funding and manage collaborative projects with exploitation and growth opportunities for all the partners involved. Xecs succeeds the highly successful Penta and Euripides Clusters with impactful projects, Driving Digital Transformation.

Xecs operates along the full ECS value chain, from materials and process technologies to components, modules and their integration into electronic systems, embedded software developments and software technologies, to full systems and System of Systems.

How are the Xecs Calls run?

Xecs runs Calls for projects on an annual basis. Each Call is guided by the ECS Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda and supported by countries across the Eureka network. The Call cycle allows extensive opportunity to generate project ideas and build collaborative consortia with events organised to support the process. Each Call operates in two stages: the Project Outline gives a short overview of the project and the Full Project Proposal describes the complete project plan.

Who can participate?

Xecs is open to all type of partners: SMEs, Large Enterprises, Research and Technology Organisations and universities.

How can Xecs office help you?

The Xecs office is available throughout the complete life of the project: from the project idea development to the project end, supporting you to build your consortium, submit your proposal, coaching and mentoring your consortium until the very end of your project, with the assessment of the generated impact.
