Save the date! Silicon Eurocluster project launches its open call for proposals for microelectronics systems

  • Silicon Eurocluster project launches its open call for projects up to 80,000 €

The project aims to achieve greater European self-sufficiency with increased competitiveness and resilience in the electronics value chain paying attention to SMEs. In this context, we launch our Open call for demonstration projects where we expect to fund 25 market-oriented projects involving consortia with at least 2 SMEs. Funded projects will receive up to 80.000€ and the total budget of the open call is 1.010.000 €.

The projects to be funded under this call are technology solutions including a prototype (demonstrator) of a microelectronics system and which may include other technologies such as radio communications, cybersecurity, energy harvesting, AI, sensors, or photonics. Eligible activities may include:

  • Investigation of technical and design requirements.
  • Development of prototypes or demonstration versions of products or services. This may also include pilot work, testing and validation.
  • Planning and carrying out studies/testing to verify an innovation.
  • Investigation of market conditions, such as identifying customers, customer needs, potential partners, and competitors

The challenges and proposed solutions should describe how to improve resource efficiency, support green entrepreneurship, and facilitate market access for SMEs offering green products and services.

The call will be open on the 28/03/2023 until the 31/05/2023 at 17.00 CET. Two informative webinars with Q&A session will be organized on the 18th of April and 03rd of may.
