Montenegro offers you


Partner search

The Ministry of Science and Technological Development can help you to find project partners by contacting other national funding bodies in Eureka’s network (consisting of over 45 member countries). For more information on how to find international project partners, contact the ministry or consult the Enterprise Europe Network’s (EEN) online database. The ministry also recommends the Scientific Network’s interactive online system for organisations seeking Montenegrin partners.


Advice services and support tools

The ministry offers advice and support from concept to commercialisation for organisations collaborating on international R&D projects. The ministry can confirm your organisation’s eligibility, answer questions about the application process and review your proposal before you submit your application.

The ministry offers additional support that complements Eureka’s funding programmes, such as its Programme for Supporting Innovative Start-Ups. Additional funding support is also announced in the ministry's call for Co-financing Scientific Research and Innovation activities.
