Electronic components and systems (ECS), and micro- and nanoelectronics based systems and applications, are now the cornerstone of economic and societal development. To keep ahead in global markets, a solid understanding of rapidly changing needs, together with the establishment of innovation and exploitation ecosystems involving all relevant stakeholders, is essential.
With a focus on impact through applications, Xecs projects bring together partners from all along the ECS value chain into R&D and innovation ecosystems. By forming these project ecosystems using complementary partners, all aspects of expertise required to meet and exceed the stated project goals can be brought together into a single project.
Guided by the ECS Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda prepared by experts gathered by the three Industry Associations AENEAS, ARTEMIS-IA and EPoSS, Xecs launches calls for projects addressing the full value chain of ECS and will benefit from the wide dynamic innovation ecosystem stimulated by these industry associations.
