ECS Collaboration Tool

an opportunity for consortium building in the complete ECS value chain

ECS Collaboration Tool at EFECS


Part 1 of EFECS will be mainly focussed on the ECS-SRA - the shared Strategic Research Agenda for Research & Innovation in Electronic Components and Systems which includes Project Idea Pitches in each ECS-SRA chapter session. To support the community, the creation of new project ideas and  consortia building, the EFECS organisation offers visitors the ECS Collaboration Tool.

The ECS Collaboration Tool is open to all in the ECS Community, and available 24/7. Users can initiate projects and invite partners, or use the messaging system to look for partners or projects. After forming consortia, project teams can assess the best mechanism for funding support for their project, be it a National, ECSEL-JU, European Commission or EUREKA type funding.

 In case you would like to apply to pitch your idea in one of the ECS-SRA sessions, please take the following steps:

  • go to the ECS Collaboration Tool
  • create an account
  • add a project idea in the tool
  • select the chapter(s) that apply to your project idea
  • select the option(s) to apply for a pitch timeslot and/or poster space

The chapter leaders of each session will receive an overview of all project pitches that applied and are responsible for the final selection.
