Submit application


Are you a Swiss SME? Would you like to carry out an innovation project with international partners?

Prerequisites for submitting your application

Swiss partners either need to be registered with the Swiss Register of Commerce or be recognised as a research institution. Each Swiss partner is also required to cover part of the project budget through an own contribution. In addition, your project must meet all formal requirements.

Amount of funding for your Eurostars project

The funding covers the following project costs for Swiss partners:

SMEs 50%
Large companies 25%
Research institutions


Project coordination handled by an SME

An innovative SME takes the lead for project coordination. The project lead organises information regarding the submission deadline and oversees that the application is completed by all participating partners in Switzerland and abroad by the given deadlines. A consortium only needs to submit one application for all partners from different countries.

In a first step, the project lead creates an account on the Eurostars website. From there, they are guided step by step through the application process and receive information on the formal requirements for submitting an application. The national funding organisations in the partner countries are available to answer questions about the application process and the funding conditions applicable to individual countries.

Once the submission deadline has passed, the Eureka Secretariat will start the evaluation process.
