Be part of a global network for R&D and innovation collaboration
Posted on 13/11/2018
Science and innovation remain key drivers of productivity and the need for businesses of all sizes to collaborate beyond national borders and to operate globally is now even more vital to future successes.
EUREKA is a unique network bringing together the largest grouping of national ministries and innovation agencies to support global business-focused research and development (R&D) and innovation. The UK is proud to have taken on the Chairmanship of EUREKA for a third time and through the EUREKA members working together, the Chairmanship can ensure that EUREKA remains the leading global network for R&D and innovation collaboration.
The UK committed £5 million to supporting UK businesses in EUREKA Eurostars projects in 2018 and a further £5 million has been made available for 2019, with additional funding available for other EUREKA Network activities. Eurostars is a joint programme between EUREKA and the European Commission, co-funded from the national budgets of 36 Eurostars Partner States and Countries and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme. In the 2014-2020 period it has a total public budget of €1.14 billion
