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 the National Innovation Agency (ANI) 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 ANI to discuss which documents you need to provide and how to submit them. You may need to submit documents directly to ANI 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. Portuguese participants must also submit a funding application (that complies with Aviso Portugal 2020 conditions) to ANI within 30 working days of receiving confirmation that your project has received a positive evaluation. ANI will make a funding decision within five weeks of receiving your application.
