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.
  • Montenegrin organisations can only receive funding for one Eureka project per year.
  • The project’s thematic area needs to be aligned with the Ministry’s Strategy for Research Activity or Strategy on Innovation Activity.
