Eligibility criteria

Our Network projects programme has limited eligibility criteria for joining a consortium and you can participate in an R&D project even if you are not eligible to receive any funding:

  • Your project idea must represent cooperation in the form of a specific project.
  • The project must be directed at researching or developing a product, process or service.
  • The project must have a civilian purpose.
  • Your consortium must include at least two independent legal entities from at least two Eureka countries.
  • No single organisation or country can be responsible for more than 70% of the project budget.

The Ministry has additional criteria for projects to be eligible to receive funding:

  • One Montenegrin applicant must be registered with the Ministry as an innovative organisation in the Registry of Innovation Activity.
  • Montenegrin organisations can only receive funding for one Eureka project per year.

The projects with the thematic area aligned with the priorities of the Montenegrin Smart Specialization Strategy 2019-2024 or the Montenegrin Strategy for Scientific Research Activity will be prioritized in the selection process.
