Eurostars - for innovative SMEs

Eurostars is the only Europe-wide funding programme to be specifically designed for innovative small and medium sized Enterprises (SMEs). In a short period of time, the programme has raised to a unique position in the complex landscape of R&D funding instruments. The main participant of a Eurostars project’s consortium must be an R&D SME in order to satisfy the Eurostars eligibility criteria. Projects are collaborative, meaning they must involve at least two participants from two different Eurostars participating countries. Projects are also market-driven: within two years of project completion, the product of the research should be ready for launch onto the market. The next Eurostars funding call is scheduled to take place in 2014. There will be no more Eurostars calls in 2013.
