About 1500 European companies, research institutes and Universities got
together in consortia and submitted Expressions of Interest indicating
their readiness to propose in 2014 at least 74 R&D projects with a total
of 2.9 Billion euro eligible costs to be funded through the new ECSEL
Joint Undertaking (JU). This participation would oversubscribe about 4
times the budgeted public incentives, creating a solid basis for
selecting the most innovative and impactful proposals in the two open
and competitive calls for proposals to be launched by ECSEL JU on 9 July
Andreas Wild, the designated Executive Director of the ECSEL JU, said: “The response to our invitation to submit an Expression of Interest has been unprecedentedly strong, highlighting the confidence of the stakeholders in ECSEL’s capability to deliver, but also their high expectations. We are fully committed to induce alignment of the national and European strategies and priorities, to use public funding to leverage increased private engagement, and to elevate the European R&D&I to the next level, ensuring unrestricted access to state-of-the art components and systems inducing innovation in all industries and all aspect of societal life”.
The ECSEL JU programme is described in the Multi Annual Strategic Plan (MASP) emphasizing large innovation actions, driving towards industrial maturity break through results generated by smaller research and innovation actions. The drafts of the MASP and of the Work Plan 2014 are available on the ECSEL JU website. They will be submitted to the ECSEL Governing Board for approval shortly.
