Eureka Network projects

Your company or research group is active in science-based innovation, research and development. You are working with contacts abroad while doing so. The Eureka Network project support offer makes it possible to quickly launch and implement your international innovation project.

Conditions and evaluation

You can submit Eureka Network projects at any time and on any innovation topic. Your Swiss consortium includes at least one research institute and one implementation partner. You also need at least one implementation partner from another Eureka member country. Innosuisse will review your funding application, while the relevant partner agency abroad will review your implementation partner’s funding application. Eureka coordinates the funding decisions in the individual countries and is responsible for approval at an international level.

As with the funding of Swiss innovation projects, there is no limit to the duration of Eureka Network projects. As a rule, such projects last between 6 and 36 months. Provided it is sensible for your project, the cost-benefit ratio is right and the implementation partner is willing to bear 50% of the project costs themselves, there is no financial limit on applications.

If you as a company without a Swiss research partner want to participate in a Network project, you can do so as a self-financed partner with a corresponding confirmation to Innosuisse.

You can find the complete conditions for submitting applications here.

Submit application

Together with your international partners, submit a Smart Simple application and at the same time a project application to Innosuisse for the Swiss part of the consortium. The process, evaluation criteria and application submission are exactly the same as for Swiss innovation projects.
