What is Eurostars?

Eurostars has been running successfully since 2007. It is the first European funding and support programme to be specifically dedicated to support the niche market of research-performing SMEs in their innovative R&D projects. With its bottom-up approach, it stimulates international collaborative research and innovation projects that will be rapidly commercialised. Participation in a Eurostars project can become a passport to growth, further innovation, an opening to new global markets and even greater business success.

Eurostars is a joint programme supporting R&D performing small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). It is co-funded from the national budgets of 36 Eurostars countries and by the European Union through Horizon 2020. Participating countries earmark funds for their participants following national funding rules and procedures.
