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.

Fuel cell, hydrogen production
Forklifts and similar material-handling vehicles pump out eight times more CO2 emissions than regular passenger vehicles. Danish and German specialists teamed up to bring these large diesel-powered workhorses into the 21st century thanks to developments in hybrid hydrogen fuel-cell technology.
Construction workers building a high rise

Civil engineering
A German engineering firm and spin-off of the University of Karlsruhe has teamed up with the Technical University of Dresden and a Greek software company to develop an innovative and commercially viable code that simulates the results of wind-induced loads on high-rises.
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.
