  • 1. Katharina Lehmeier Barcelona > 24-03-11 EUREKA and its Construction Technology Sector EUREKA BUILD2 Brokerage event Doing business through technology
  • 2. The EUREKA Initiative is… > > intergovernmental > nationally-financed > market-oriented > bottom-up
  • 3. Nationally financed >Financing for EUREKA projects comes from twomain sources: > national public sources (national research and innovation funds) > investment by industry in R&D
  • 4. Market-oriented > > EUREKA addresses applied, not fundamental, research projects > The result of a EUREKA project must be a marketable product, process or service
  • 5. EUREKA statement and target >> EUREKA means business> EUREKA means project cooperation> EUREKA means links to customers, partners, experts and financing bodies
  • 6. EUREKA is a Partner of choice for private investors > It supports : > Highly-innovative SMEs > Market-relevant projects > Internationally-minded teams > Projects are always pre-screened
  • 7. Bottom-up > The EUREKA project consortium decides: > the way a project comes together > the end result The consortium is close to the market, so can be flexible and respond quickly to market change.

  • 11. Some Statistics >Who participates in EUREKA projects? > Nearly 13.000 partners from across Europe - and beyond
  • 12. The pillars of EUREKA > > Strategic initiatives: Umbrellas and Clusters > Individual projects > The Eurostars Programme
  • 13. Strategic Initiatives > > Clusters > Long-term, strategically-significant initiatives > Large number of participants, many from Europe’s major companies (e.g. Philips, Infineon) > Develop generic technologies of key importance to European competitivenes
  • 14. Individual Projects > > Individual projects > Small, short-term projects > Ready-to-market results > Involve participants from at least two member countries > Result in a product, process or service representing a significant advance in their sector
  • 15. Strategic Initiatives > > Umbrellas > Thematic networks of public authorities and sectoral experts > Their objective is to generate EUREKA projects > Fields of activity: manufacturing, construction, logistics, food and feed, surface, tourism
  • 16. Strategic Initiatives > > Umbrellas > ProFACTORY: Production technologies > EuroAgri FoodChain: Agriculture, food and feed, bio-economy > EUREKABUILD2: Construction technology > EUREKA TOURISM: IT technologies for tourism > LOGCHAIN+: Freight chains and logistics > i-Surf: surface materials
  • 17. The Eurostars Programme > > Eurostars > A European funding and support programme to be specifically dedicated to R&D performing SMEs > An Article 169 programme of the Treaty, co- decision by EU parliament and EU council > Multi-annual joint programme (2007-2013), combining > National R&D programmes from 32 countries (300 M€ committed) > FP7 (up to 100 M€ committed) > EUREKA Secretariat (20+years of experience in national R&D programmes coordination) > Two calls for proposals per year

  • 36. Ex-Post Impact Analysis of EUREKAReport 2000-2005 the Final ImpactBased on 1000 final reports received from 2000 to 2005, we coulddetermine that for one million euros of Public funds invested in aEUREKA project, on average : 2.5 millions euros of Private funds were put in additionally which resulted in 13 millions of additional turnover (achieved and expected) and 54 Jobs created or safeguarded (achieved and expected).
  • 37. EUREKA Added Value in in the ERA EUREKA Added Value the ERAEUREKA tackles two weaknesses of the ERA thanks to:> Strong support to European Industry (notably to SMEs) reducing the gap between Research & Innovation> Efficient & Balanced Model for Joint programming reducing the European fragmentionEUREKA is a key actor for a successful ERA !
