Eureka Eurostars 2: round 13
Registration closes: 06 Feb 2020, 12:00
Final date for applications: 13 Feb 2020, 12:00
Eurostars will award up to 360,000 euros funding for each UK project partner or 60% of eligible project costs, whichever is the least.
This competition is aimed at micro, small or medium sized enterprises (SMEs) working on high-quality research and development (R&D) projects across national borders.
These enterprises often find it difficult to attract public-sector funding. EUREKA Eurostars was set up to overcome this barrier to innovation. With its market-led approach, it encourages international collaborative research and innovation projects that will be rapidly commercialised.
Eurostars supports SMEs in leading international collaborative research and innovation projects by helping them get access to guidance and funding.
A Eurostars project must have a civilian purpose and be aimed at the development of a new product, process or service.
Projects must be led by a research-performing SME.
