EUROSTARS is a program to support the development of transnational innovation projects close to the market, led by intensive SMEs in R & D.
The Eurostars Program currently has the participation of 25 Member States and the EC, in strong support for European innovative SMEs. Until 2020 the EC will contribute 287 M€, to which more than 800 M€ will be added from the EUREKA signatory countries. It is estimated that EUROSTARS projects reach a total budget of more than 2,000 M€ between 2014 and 2020.
In Spain, the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, through the CDTI, is responsible for the management of the program.
INNOWWIDE will aim to bring innovative European SMEs to the forefront of international markets by funding Viability Assessment Projects (VAPs) in cooperation with local stakeholders around the world, creating the conditions to increase the uptake of European innovative solutions in markets outside of Europe. The programme follows a bottom-up approach, with no specific topics to be addressed.
