    Eurostars is part of the European Partnership on Innovative SMEs. The partnership is jointly funded by the European Union under Horizon Europe.

    Eurostars serves as a funding instrument specifically designed to support innovative SMEs and project partners (large corporations, universities, research institutions, and various other entities) by financially supporting collaborative international R&D and innovation projects. Participating entities gain access to public funding for diverse collaborative R&D endeavours spanning all sectors.

    For a successful application within the Eurostars framework, it’s essential to:

    1. Have a clearly defined project concept.
    2. Collaborate internationally, sharing expertise.
    3. Develop products, processes, or services with strong potential for commercialisation.

    Innovative SMEs interested in learning more are welcome to attend an interactive webinar hosted on 11 January 10.30 CET, where there will an opportunity to ask any questions. Register for the webinar here.

    The application for R&D and innovation projects is open to 37 countries and can be submitted between January 12, 2024, and March 14, 2024, at 14:00 CET (Brussels time) via the dedicated project platform at myeurekaproject.org. While an innovative SME should lead the project consortium, other entities such as large companies, universities, and research organizations are welcome to be part of the consortium.
