Eurostars is open!

#aim even higher

Our Eurostars funding programme is  open for applications !

Innovative SMEs: get ready to...

  • lead international project consortia,
  • collaborate on market-driven R&D and innovation projects with like-minded partners
  • and grow your company.

Eurostars is a funding programme open to SMEs, large companies, research organisations and universities. 

New improvements

Over the past 13 years of running our Eurostars programme, we learnt a thing or two and made some positive changes based on your feedback.

Here's what’s new

  • Receive your project funding even faster
  • Face fewer eligibility criteria
  • Benefit from new support that will help you reach international markets
  • Manage your application on our new easy-to-use project platform 

And the big one... we’re widening the reach of our funding programme from R&D-performing SMEs, large companies, universities and research organisations to include… innovative SMEs!

What does this mean for you?

If you are an SME with no previous R&D experience, but you have the ambition and capabilities to develop new products, processes and services, you will be eligible for funding.

    We encourage SMEs to #aimevenhigher by funding and supporting international R&D projects.
