The call closes on 24 February 2023

Eureka is the world’s biggest public network for international cooperation in R&D and innovation, present in over 45 countries. It is a decentralised intergovernmental organisation aiming to boost the productivity and competitiveness of industries by funding and supporting international collaborative market-driven R&D projects.

This call for projects has been launched following Eureka’s Clusters framework based on mutual consent between participating national and regional funding bodies and Cluster organisations.

Eurogia 2030 has opened a call for organisations collaborating internationally on the R&D of low-carbon technology projects. By applying and participating, your organisation can access national public funding for your R&D project.

The goal of this call for projects is to stimulate activity in this important area, through the creation of international collaborative projects in applications that will support economic growth and benefit society as a whole.

You can submit your R&D project application between 19 December 2022 and 24 February 2023 by visiting the Eurogia 2030 website.
