Success stories

With its bottom-up approach, EUREKA supports the development of rapidly marketable innovative products, processes and services that help improve the daily life of everyday people. The commercialisation of the innovative products, processes and services from hundreds of successfully completed projects have added billions of euro to national economies.

Here is a selection of our best innovative R&D projects.

Imaging, Image Processing, Pattern Recognition
Precise contouring of organs at risk is an important but time-consuming part of radiotherapy treatment planning. Contouring is a highly skilled technique and every patient requires an individual approach. The Cloud Atlas project developed an auto-contouring solution taking advantage of the latest innovations in machine learning.

Renewable Sources of Energy
Around half of all energy is wasted as heat. But this ‘waste heat’ can be harnessed, alongside even low-temperature geothermal heat, to produce electricity with the help of clever technology honed for the global market thanks to Eurostars international support.

Paper technology
Saica, a family-owned Spanish paper and packaging business, developed a cost-effective, ‘green’ solution to meet growing demand for white-grade top-coated paper (testliners). Thanks to EUREKA pre-market support, that technology is now being applied at a new production plant.

Information Technology/Informatics
Dreams can come true, especially if your name is Tim Berners-Lee. His vision of a “web of data” able to be processed by machines has left the realm of science fiction and entered the real world, as new applications, tools and business models give today’s “semantic web” its much-needed edge. One EUREKA project is in the thick of it.

By building on the developments made in previous Celtic-Plus projects in the same domain (WiSafeCar and CarLink), CoMoSeF managed to develop 23 new products that make driving under extreme weather conditions safer.

Civil engineering
A German engineering firm and spin-off of the University of Karlsruhe has teamed up with the Technical University of Dresden and a Greek software company to develop an innovative and commercially viable code that simulates the results of wind-induced loads on high-rises.
A BTM could replace today´s ATMs in the near future.

ELECTRONICS, IT AND TELECOMS TECHNOLOGY
To integrate new digital currencies, such as Bitcoin, into global financial systems requires that checks and balances be put in place to ensure adherence to local laws and regulations and protect consumers from fraud while maintaining privacy. This is where the Blockchain PISC project comes in.

A consortium of French, German and Austrian partners won the 2018 EUREKA Innovation Award in the "Successful SME – large corporation collaboration" category.
