EUREKA Eurostars

The EUREKA Eurostars programme enables:
  • Initiation of new development projects together with other European enterprises. An Eurostars project can focus on any technological field in which the R&D activities target the development of a novel product/process/service. One of the requirements of the programme is that there have to be at least 2 R&D intensive enterprises from different Eurostars programme member states.
  • In comparison to the Framework Programme, the Eurostars programme welcomes projects of a shorter duration and focusing on a concrete application. The projects should be close-to-the-market, i.e. come up with marketable products 2 years after the end of the project. Only in case of biomedicine, the projects have to reach the stage of clinical trials 2 years after the end of the project.
Based on our experience, the Eurostars programme is a good solution for enterprises that wish to involve their potential end users (clients) or R&D partners in the development of their novel product or service.

Our consultants will guide you throughout the whole project preparation process and assist in:

  • Project idea formulation
  • Defining the consortium structure and finding suitable partners
