Does your SME want to strengthen its competitiveness and develop an innovative product or service with foreign partner companies or research teams? The Eurostars programme will help you do just that. Eurostars promotes cooperation with partners from 33 European countries, as well as Canada, South Africa and South Korea, accross all thematic areas. The initiative is aimed in particular at innovative small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs): in other words, SMEs that develop products or services that differ significantly from existing products or services.
You can submit your application for a Eurostars project through calls, which usually take place twice a year.
This programme is aimed at:
- Innovative SMEs, large companies, and research institutions.
The Eurostars programme is a joint programme of Eureka and the European Union and is part of the European Partnership on Innovative SMEs. The evaluation of the applications and the reporting on the projects is carried out centrally in Brussels by the Eureka Secretariat for all participating countries. Innosuisse is responsible for issuing the contracts, paying out the funding and carrying out the financial reporting in Switzerland.
