What is EUREKA?


Published on

EUREKA is a leading open platform for international cooperation in innovation. It remains to this day the only initiative of its kind committed to the ‘bottom-up’principle - ensuring that any R&D project with a good business plan receives the support it deserves, independent of its technological nature, or the type of organisations involved.

EUREKA exists to help businesses bring their innovation to the market by helping them access public fundings.

  14. 14. 2018 EUREKA Secretariat “The bottom-up approach of EUREKA is a big advantage, especially for industrial partners and innovative companies. In other programmes, you 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
