ITALY joined the EUREKA initiative in 1985 as a founding member.
The National EUREKA office belongs to MIUR (Ministry of Education, University and Research) which appoints the National Project Coordinator and the High Level Representative.
The Ministry for Education, University and Research (MIUR) is the funding body for Eurostars projects.
At present, there are no funding instruments dedicated to EUREKA projects in Italy. Potential participants should look for alternative sources of funding, including self-funding.
