The Eurostars program supports innovative SMEs and project partners to develop collaborative R&D and innovation projects in all fields, i.e., innovative products, processes and services that will provide them with a competitive advantage. Eurostars provides funding for transnational innovation projects for rapid commercialisation and is an ideal first step in international cooperation enabling SMEs to combine and share expertise beyond national borders. The transnational focus emphasizes that Eurostars is looking for projects with a "shared benefits" approach for all partners.
The consortium must have partners based in at least two different Eurostars countries. Universities and large corporations can form part of the consortium.
Funding on average is in the range of 50-75% of project costs (national rules pending) and duration can be up to 36 months.
Your project consortium must have an innovative SME in the leading role, however, can also include, e.g., large companies, universities, research organisations etc. The grant per partner is around 300,000-500,000, and the total funding per country is divided between all partners from one country. The funding rate depends on the country rules - Contact us for more details on specific country rules.
