EURIPIDES is one of the seven thematic clusters of the EUREKA programme. It encourages and supports the emergence of market-oriented collaborative RDI projects in the field of intelligent electronic systems. The projects targeted focus on the design, development and integration of heterogeneous electronic products, advanced intelligent sensors or even powerful electronic components or implanted or embedded systems for a wide variety of applications, including aerospace, automobile, energy, healthcare, transport, but also the development of intelligent cities, mobility or security.

The projects selected in the frame of the EURIPIDES cluster do not receive any funding from this organisation but a label. They are financed by national funding agencies (Innoviris for Brussels) according to their own specific funding rules.

The projects must meet all of the eligibility criteria defined by the EURIPIDES programme.
Furthermore, in order to obtain funding, each partner must meet the eligibility criteria defined by its national funding agency. 

For Brussels research organisations, the financing conditions are as follows.
