ECLIPS is a multi-national project carried out by Arizona State University and University of California Los Angeles (in the US), Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science (Empa) in Switzerland, Technical University-Delft in Netherlands, and TECNALIA in Spain.

The project is funded through the Infravation grant, an initiative of the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR) and coordinated by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment.

Infravation brings together funding from the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, the Danish Road Directorate, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, the Swedish Transport Administration, the Icelandic Road Administration, the French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, the Spanish Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology, the Italian National Roads and Highways Authority, the Israeli National Transport Infrastructure Company, the Federal Highway Administration (United States), FEHRL, TUV Rheinland Consulting GmbH, the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme and CEDR.

EUPAVE (European Concrete Paving Association) and ACPA (American Concrete Pavement Association) are in charge of the dissemination of the ECLIPS project and main outcomes.

ECLIPS is working on the incorporation of phase change materials with a suitable phase transition temperature, enthalpy of phase change and degree of dispersion in the concrete.
