We are pleased to invite you to the launch event of the Xecs Call 2 on 29 September 2022 – 10:00 – 11:30 CEST. The event aims at answering all your questions: What is Xecs? What are the focus areas ? How to participate and benefit from it? How to get funded for my RD&I project? What are the eligibility criteria and how to get in touch with my National funding agency representative?

Xecs is a Eureka Clusters under the Eureka Clusters Programme (ECP). Xecs builds on the strong legacy of Penta and Euripides² and is focussed on stimulating innovative projects in the Electronic Components and Systems (ECS) community that will address all areas of a sustainable digital transformation of our economy and society.

Xecs is a programme for the ECS community, with exploitation and growth opportunities for all the partners involved. Xecs focuses on the Electronic Components & Systems (ECS) and their applications and encourages innovation beyond the state-of-the-art, stimulates growth and helps create a better life for all of us.

Open to all and easy to access, Xecs brings together SMEs, Large Enterprises, Research and Technology Organisations and Universities together into balanced, international “innovation ecosystems”. Xecs is designed to help you build a RD&I consortium, access funding and manage your collaborative project.

Guided by the ECS Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda prepared by experts gathered by the three Industry Associations AENEAS, EPoSS, and Inside, Xecs launches annual Calls addressing the full value chain of ECS and will benefit from the wide dynamic innovation ecosystem stimulated by these industry associations.
