EUREKA’s Clusters are a EUREKA success story. In terms of project funding they represent more than 70% of the EUREKA portfolio. They feature a high industrial participation, with a considerable – and increasing – level of SME participation. The success of the Clusters relies on the opportunity for member countries which can support their companies in major strategic technology fields in line with national priorities (variable geometry). The willingness of member countries to provide funds is connected to the expectations in terms of economic impact or contribution to resolving the 'grand challenges' for their country in the short and the long‐term.
The 2012 annual report was presented in April 2012 to the EUREKA network. This report is compilling general information, success stories and statistics on the six EUREKA Clusters, namely Acqueau, Catrene, Celtic Plus, EURIPIDES, EUROGIA+ and ITEA2.
