What is EUREKA?

EUREKA is a company- programme, which means that the needs of companies and users determine which project are carried out. The projects involve small and large companies, research institutes, universities and other relevant actors from at least two member countries. The network currently has 45 participating countries. The focus is on Europe, but South Korea, Canada, South Africa, Chile and Argentina are also participating.

EUREKA finances the project through three sub-programs:

  • Eurostars - a programme for research small and medium-sized enterprises
  • Cluster- thematic programme for collaborations between industry and academia.
  • Network projects - Company-driven international research and development projects close to the market. Used mainly in bilateral and multilateral calls with certain countries.

Funding for project takes place via the national authorities that are members of EUREKA.

Who can participate?

EUREKA is primarily aimed at companies with their own research and development, but is also open to participation from research institutes, universities and the public sector. For more information, see the different programs' rules for participation.

Vinnova's role
