This webinar will introduce you to Xecs Cluster, a flexible industry-driven EUREKA Cluster on Electronics Components & Systems, whose main objective is the promotion of collaborative and international close-to-market R&D&I projects with decentralised national funding.

EUREKA is an intergovernmental network launched in 1985. Its aim is to support market-oriented R&D and innovation projects by industry, research centres and universities across all technological sectors. It is a global network of government ministries and innovation agencies of over 45 countries, who collaborate on research and innovation projects.

With its flexible and decentralised network, EUREKA offers project partners:

  • rapid access to skills and expertise across Europe
  • national public and private funding schemes

EUREKA Clusters are thematic public private partnerships which convene projects between SMEs, large industry and academia across EUREKA countries. There are currently seven different Clusters in different technological fields. As part of supporting increased international UK business involvement, the UK has already taken part in two EUREKA Cluster Calls. Find more information about EUREKA.
