Eureka Eurostars 3: call for innovative SMEs

UK-registered SMEs can apply for a share of up to £2.5 million for collaborative research and development projects with partners from Eurostars member countries.

The Eurostars 3 programme is Eureka network's funding programme. It aims to support collaborative research and development (CR&D) projects led by innovative SMEs in participating countries.

Call 2 of Eurostars 3 programme has now opened and is accepting applications from UK micro, small or medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

To be eligible, CR&D projects must focus on industrial research. They must have high market potential and develop at least one of the following:

innovative products
technology-based applications
technology-based services

To apply, you must also fulfil seven eligibility criteria.

In the UK, only UK-registered innovative SMEs are eligible for funding provided that they meet competition conditions. More than one UK SME can be involved in each project.

UK SMEs can apply for a total grant of up to 360,000 euros for each eligible UK project partner or 60 per cent of total eligible project costs, whichever is the least.

Projects must be collaborative and can last up to 36 months. Your project start date depends on the national funding procedures of the Eureka Eurostars members involved in the selected projects.
