Designing new cyber-physical systems? Grab a €150,000 check

May 12, 2016 // By Julien Happich
The third call of the EuroCPS project has been launched, offering up to €150,000 in funding per European SME for innovative Cyber-Physical System (CPS) experiments.

Funded by the European Commission and coordinated by CEA-Leti, EuroCPS is a three-year, €9.2 million project designed to help companies overcome barriers they face when entering new markets. By submitting their proposals for industrial experiments, small- and medium-sized enterprises can apply for up to €150,000 to develop new products and components for cyber-physical systems (CPS).

The deadline for applications is 1 June 2016, and applicants will be notified of whether their application has been successful by 20 July 2016.

Matchmaking SMEs with major CPS platform providers and competence centres, EuroCPS will provide design support to enable rapid development and lower the entry costs for designing and optimising the CPS solutions, leading to new business and innovation opportunities.

Proposals can include software prototype demonstrators running on a EuroCPS platform; integrated system component prototypes or system architecture virtual prototype demonstrators.

The products will be designed, constructed and built on EuroCPS platforms, and the work will be carried out in collaboration with at least one of the research and technology organisations or academic institutions forming the network of EuroCPS competence centres.
