We are always at your service. Always. A message from the Head of the Eureka Secretariat

Dear Innovator

At Eureka, we are always at your service – and remain so as we temporarily work from home. I am here to reassure you that our collaborators remain 100% committed to supporting you in your R&D endeavours. ‘We’ means not just the Brussels-based Eureka team, but our representatives in over 45 countries across Europe and the world.

We are confident that this moment will pass, but we and you must all take the recommended measures to protect everyone.

We want to reassure you with this message that processing of applications for the latest Eurostars call is proceeding as planned, with the independent evaluation panel and ethics review taking place remotely.

We also have many calls for projects running; you can find more details of these at eurekanetwork.org/calls-for-projects. Our websites are open 24/7 for you to discover the opportunities for international collaboration and to access the support that our national representatives in Europe and around the world offer R&D-performing companies, universities and research organisations. We invite you to explore the benefits of our different programmes.

Additionally, Eureka is a partner in Innowwide.eu, which funds viability assessment projects to stimulate market expansion; the next Innowwide application deadline has now been extended to 7 April 2020.

I want to thank you and encourage you not to let the current situation stop you from innovating or indeed finding support for your R&D endeavours.

Above all, we wish you all the best in health, strength and resilience.

Yours faithfully,

Philippe Vanrie
