Bulgarian funding body, Bulgarian Small and Medium Enterprises Promotion Agency (BSMEPA), funds R&D costs for SMEs participating in our Eurostars programme.

BSMEPA covers up to 80% of project costs in grants for SMEs.

Young innovative companies can also receive a subsidy if R&D costs are at least 15% of your total yearly expenses in (minimum) one year out of the three years preceding a Eurostars application.

The maximum funding amount is a grant of 100,000 euro per project per year. The exact funding amount depends on whether your project activities fall into the category of industrial scientific research or experimental development.

Bulgaria currently has no allocated budget for large companies participating in our Eurostars programme. If you are a Bulgarian large company wanting to participate in a Eurostars consortium, contact the Bulgarian Small and Medium Enterprises Promotion Agency (BSMEPA) to see whether there are other funding opportunities available or talk to them about self-funding.

If you are a Bulgarian university or research organisation wanting to participate in a Eurostars consortium, contact the Bulgarian Small and Medium Enterprises Promotion Agency (BSMEPA) to see whether there are other funding opportunities available or talk to them about self-funding.
