  • What is the offer about

    With this the offer, we want to support international collaborative projects with actors along the entire value chain for smart electronics systems. The projects can touch on everything from sensors to integrated electronics products. The solutions may be intended to be applied in, for example, the automotive sector, biomedical engineering, the security industry or the production area. The call for proposal is made within the framework of the EUREKA cluster EURIPIDES2, an international innovation cluster for smart electronics.

    In order to receive funding, the results must be relevant to the competitiveness of the Swedish business community. Expected results of the projects are, for example, prototypes and demonstrators of interest to potential customers in an international market. For a successful proposal on national funding for Vinnova, participation from both major companies, SMEs and academia / research institutes is normally required.

    EURIPIDES2 Office offers support during the consortium construction and among other things they are involved in organizing a networking event in Brussels January 14-15 in Brussels. It is also possible to upload and share project ideas in ECS Collaboration Tool. See more info under the links below.

    Sweden is not a member of the EUREKA cluster Penta and does not support project in pure micro- and nanoelectronics within EUREKA. Instead, Vinnova refers Swedish actors to EU ECSEL Joint Undertaking. However, through the joint call that PENTA and Euripides have the opportunity for Swedish actors to collaborate with actors from countries that support PENTA.

    The application process takes place in several steps

    1. First you send an outline, a so-called project outline, to EURIPIDES2 (not to Vinnova).

    2. EURIPIDES2 and Vinnova assess the proposal and if it is of sufficient quality you are offered to submit a complete proposal.

    3. The complete proposal from the international consortium is assessed and the applications that are approved receive a so-called label. This means that the national consortia are given the opportunity to submit applications to each country's funding public authority. It is at this stage that the Swedish consortium is invited to submit a proposal to Vinnova.

    4. Based on the applications and a project interview, Vinnova makes a definitive assessment whether you receive funding or not.

    What is EURIPIDES2 all about?

    EURIPIDES2 is an innovation cluster for smart electronics. Klustret EURIPIDES2 is part of EUREKA where generic technologies of major importance for European competitiveness are developed.

    All project within the EUREKA clusters, public-private partnerships with a broad industrial participation, which aims to promote research and encourage standardization processes.


    Proposal takes place on the EURIPIDES2 website. It is possible to contact Vinnova to discuss your project and your budget before submitting your proposal.
