How to apply

Submitting your Eurostars application is designed to be quick and simple. It gives you the opportunity to tell us more about your organisation and the innovative new product, process or service you plan to research or develop.  

1. Contact the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) using the form below to discuss your project idea, funding rules in your country, financial viability and eligibility. 

2. Create an account (one per project application) on our Eurostars application portal. On receiving a verification email, you will have access to the online application form. 

3. Using the portal, 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 that all information is correct. 

4. Upload your annexes by attaching them to your online application form. We strongly recommend that you attach two financial reports from the past two financial years. These can be in your national language.  

Only organisations that are 100% publicly funded (e.g. universities, hospitals etc.) do not have to supply these documents. If you are unable to provide a financial report (e.g. if you are a startup), a business plan may be submitted instead. 

You have the option of including one additional annex to your application that is related to your project. 

5. Ensure that you submit your completed application form and annexes before the deadline. 

6. A few days after the Eurostars deadline, Spanish participants will be officially requested by the CDTI to send a Declaration of Eligibility. If you do not submit this declaration in time, you will fail the national Financial Viability Check and will not be eligible to receive national funding.  

7. Spanish companies that have never submitted their official accounts (Presentación de Cuentas en Registro) must submit a detailed business plan for the next three to five years.  

8. CDTI may officially request additional information to assess your financial viability after the Eurostars deadline. 

9. After your Eurostars project has been approved, every Spanish company must submit a National Funding application, even if there is more than one Spanish participant in the same project.  

10. The funding call is based on a general procedure for providing grants at national level, so there are several phases (registration, amendments, funding proposal and final decision) that should be accomplished.  

A funding decision is made 11-12 weeks (on average) after the national funding registration deadline.  

Why must I send a financial report? 

The information given in an official financial report indicates to your national funding body whether your organisation will be able to fulfil your part of the project. 

If you do not provide the information required by your national funding body, you may render yourself ineligible for public funding. Contact your national office below to discuss which documents your national funding body accepts.
