Published on

This major study, carried out by a consortium led by Prognos AG and its research partners, Joanneum Research and Professor Cincera (Université Libre de Bruxelles), focused on impact of EUREKA grant-based support to companies in the period 2001-2015.

Member countries mobilized an estimated € 11.2billion in project costs for Network and Cluster projects in this period. The methodology involved analyzing the performance of 3 096 participating companies, compared to a control group of 54 814, and employed counterfactual econometric methods (using a difference-indifferences design) alongside surveys and interviews.

Eureka Impact Study

  1. 1. 1 I m p a c t r e p o r t K e y F i n d i n g s EUREKA Network and Cluster projects 2001-2015
  2. 2. 2 CLOSE TO MARKET K E Y F I N D I N G 1 Significant increase in annual turnover of EUREKA participating firms. 15% 13% NETWORK PROJECTS CLUSTER PROJECTS  Clear evidence supporting EUREKA’s near-to-market approach  Average annual turnover growth is generally positive and significant for participants in both Network and Clusters Projects in comparison to the control group
  3. 3. 3 COMPETITIVENESS K E Y F I N D I N G 2 69% Enter new markets 68% Improved market shares 67% Increased exports (% of survey respondents) Strengthened commercial position of participating firms 69% Increase in research staff 64% Increase in general staff 62% Overall improvement in competitive position
  4. 4. 4 EMPLOYMENT K E Y F I N D I N G 3 Positive employment effects, especially for large companies 4% 7% NETWORK PROJECTS CLUSTER PROJECTS Proven impact on job creation Findings are in line with the EC’s Final Evaluation of Eurostars-1 which found an increase of 3-3.5% on employment growth compared to non-funded firms
  5. 5. 5 PROJECT CONSORTIA K E Y F I N D I N G 4 FASTER COMMERCIALISATION SMALL CONSORTIA SHORTER PROJECTS
  6. 6. 6 PROJECT CONSORTIA K E Y F I N D I N G 4 FASTER COMMERCIALISATION In recent years, the number of consortium partners per project and the average duration of EUREKA projects have decreased The changes in size and duration of the R&D consortia could be driven by the motivation for lower co-operation costs and faster time to market. Projects lasting between one and three years generally show the highest positive, significant impacts for both Network and Cluster Projects For Cluster projects, average project duration has decreased to an average of 33 months in 2016 from a high of 38 months in 2011.
  7. 7. 7 MOTIVES FOR PARTICIPATION K E Y F I N D I N G 5 International co-operations 70%+ New business opportunities 60%+ High degree of flexibility Freedom to create consortia Strong bottom-up approach
  8. 8. 8 MOTIVES FOR PARTICIPATION K E Y F I N D I N G 5 The continuousincreasein the number of EUREKA member countries has created an importantfoundationfor developing innovationpartnershipsaroundthe world. Financial considerationsand the possibilityof sharing risksor costs are alsoimportant motivators A key motivationfor largefirms to participatein Cluster Projectsisthe opportunityfor involvementin activities ofstandardisationandstandard-setting
  9. 9. 9 MOTIVES FOR PARTICIPATION K E Y F I N D I N G 5 “The bottom-up approach of EUREKA is a big advantage, especially for industrial partners and innovative companies. In other programmes, you either work with call topics, which are very complicated or specified so broadly that it becomes difficult to focus on something specific and innovative.” Medium sized textile company, Czech Republic “The added value of EUREKA is that it can lead to very ‘near-to-market’ results. Especially for our project this has been an important element.” ICT company with 130 employees, Spain

Different effects are expected in the short- (output), medium- (outcome) and long-term (impact). Activities Input Outcomes Output Societal goals Impacts
