Success stories

With its bottom-up approach, EUREKA supports the development of rapidly marketable innovative products, processes and services that help improve the daily life of everyday people. The commercialisation of the innovative products, processes and services from hundreds of successfully completed projects have added billions of euro to national economies.

Here is a selection of our best innovative R&D projects.

Medical devices technology (instrumentation, medical imaging, radiology)
New 3D imaging can help reduce the number of men needing surgery for prostate cancer.

Delivering MRI scans to medical staff in a fraction of a second could significantly boost the effectiveness of various treatments, reduce patient risk and lower costs through shorter hospital stays and higher throughput.Delivering MRI scans to medical staff in a fraction of a second could significantly boost the effectiveness of various treatments, reduce patient risk and lower costs through shorter hospital stays and higher throughput.

High Frequency Technology, Microwaves
German a nd Israeli industrial R&D teams have pulled off a flying feat with their innovative bespoke radar system to help helicopter pilots navigate even the most difficult conditions. Successful test-flights demonstrated the system in action at low altitudes. Refits to the sensor hardware are now under way to make the radar fully flight-ready. As an innovation frontrunner, the stakes are high.

Micro- and Nanotechnology related to Biological sciences
Hungarian and Israeli biotech companies teamed up to tackle Crohn’s, an intractable inflammatory bowel disease that affects five million people worldwide. Its causes are uncertain. There is no foolproof cure and poor public understanding of the pain and chronic suffering it causes. But things are looking up thanks to the work of the Eureka PIP-4-CD team.

Raising the productivity and competitiveness of European businesses through technology. Boosting national economies on the international market, and strengthening the basis for sustainable prosperity and employment.
