The Eurostars Programme is a joint initiative between EUREKA and the European Commission, specifically dedicated to R&D-performing SMEs. With a total budget of 1.14 billion euro under Horizon 2020, the Eurostars programme is supported by 33 EUREKA countries and the European Union.
Eurostars is a programme supporting research-performing small and medium enterprises, which develop innovative products, processes and services to gain competitive advantage. Eurostars does this by providing funding for transnational innovation projects, the products of which are then rapidly commercialised.
Eurostars is a transnational programme, where projects have partners from two or more Eurostars countries. Thanks to this international collaboration, SMEs can more easily gain access to new markets and innovative skills.
Eurostars calls for projects take place twice a year, in spring and autumn.
Next submission deadline for Eurostars applications is 13th March 2014.
