The ECS Collaboration Tool - A networking tool for project ideas and potential partners.
Welcome to the ECS Collaboration Tool. This tool is a platform to create project proposals in the field of Electronic Components and Systems. With this tool we facilitate the ECS communities and collect all data and proposals together, making it easier for the ECS research community to find and create information and project proposals.
The ECS Collaboration Tool is a new Approach to inspiring innovation and is open to all experts in Electronic Components and Systems and available 24/7. The new tool is released in conjunction with the European Forum for Electronic Components and Systems (EFECS) 2017, but is available to support any related event, regardless of the funding instrument involved. It can also be used as a “stand-alone” project consortium building tool.
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.
