Eureka and Romania

Romanian organisations participating in international R&D projects are eligible for funding through our Network projects, Globalstars and Eurostars programmes. If you are based in Romania and seeking funding for an R&D project, your first point of contact is with the Ministry of Research of Innovation through the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI). UEFISCDI supports Romanian organisations interested in international collaboration giving them access to expertise and supporting their growth.
