Eureka is a network of 48 countries and the European Commission. Each country has a representative national funding body that supports its organisations by funding international Research & Development (R&D) projects. The Eureka programmes are flexible and open to startups, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), large companies, research organisations and universities. They focus on the R&D of close-to-market products, processes or services.
The aim of the Eureka Network is to promote the growth of start-ups, SMEs, large corporations, investigation centres and universities through funding and support of international cooperation in R&D and to provide preparation services for investment access.
