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.

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.

Medical technology
A Czech eye surgeon is the man behind an invention to save patients pain from eye surgery. The product could be on the market soon thanks to his Czech and Slovak industrial partners on EUREKA project EYEINJECT.

Furnace technology, construction of heating boilers
A Czech start-up has applied for a patent on a system that re-uses car exhaust energy and its CEO showcasing it on a motorised surfboard.

Paper technology
Saica, a family-owned Spanish paper and packaging business, developed a cost-effective, ‘green’ solution to meet growing demand for white-grade top-coated paper (testliners). Thanks to EUREKA pre-market support, that technology is now being applied at a new production plant.

Information Technology/Informatics
Dreams can come true, especially if your name is Tim Berners-Lee. His vision of a “web of data” able to be processed by machines has left the realm of science fiction and entered the real world, as new applications, tools and business models give today’s “semantic web” its much-needed edge. One EUREKA project is in the thick of it.
A BTM could replace today´s ATMs in the near future.

ELECTRONICS, IT AND TELECOMS TECHNOLOGY
To integrate new digital currencies, such as Bitcoin, into global financial systems requires that checks and balances be put in place to ensure adherence to local laws and regulations and protect consumers from fraud while maintaining privacy. This is where the Blockchain PISC project comes in.

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.
