How to apply

Applying to our Eurostars funding programme is designed to be quick and simple. In your application, you can tell us more about your organisation and the innovative new product, process or service you plan to research or develop.

1. Contact Malta Enterprise using the form below to discuss your project idea, funding in your country, financial viability and eligibility.

2. Create an account (one per project application) on our project platform. 

3. On the platform, complete one application form per consortium (in English) and submit it electronically. The portal allows you to save, revisit and edit your application form, giving you time to confirm all information is correct.

4. Upload annexes by attaching them to your online application form. You must complete and upload:

  • a signed commitment and signature form
  • (if you are an SME) an SME declaration 

Depending on what country you are based in, you may need to add a financial annex:

  • financial reports
  • (if you are a startup) a business plan
  • other

Contact Malta Enterprise to discuss which documents you need to provide and how to submit them. You may need to submit documents directly to Malta Enterprise rather than attaching them to your application form. If you are an organisation that is 100% publicly funded (e.g. universities, hospitals, etc.), you will not have to provide a financial annex.

You can also include annexes to support your project application: 

  • a technical annex (related to the project)
  • a Gantt chart

5. Submit your completed application form before the deadline.

6. Maltese participants must also send the following supporting documents to r&d@maltaenterprise.com at the same time as submitting a Eurostars application: 

  • a Financial Summary signed by a certified public accountant
  • an Undertaking in Difficulty declaration signed by a certified public accountant
  • a business plan (required if your company is less than three years old or employing fewer than five FTEs at the time of application) 

7. When your project has received a successful Eurostars evaluation, Maltese participants may need to submit a national application form via Malta Enterprise's client portal.

    For detailed information about applying to our Eurostars programme, read our application guidelines.
