Eureka Network

Eureka is an international network established in 1985 as an agreement between 18 countries to foster European competitiveness and integration and to encourage R&D cooperation. Since then, Eureka has expanded to include over 45 countries in Europe and beyond who share the same goals and have national funding available to organisations who apply through our programmes.

Under the motto “Towards a New Eureka”, Austria takes Eureka's Chair from July 2020 to June 2021, and celebrates the 35th anniversary of the Network. The Austrian Chairmanship prioritises the further development of Eureka's programmes, global outreach and internal cooperation, as well as upholding the unique selling point of Eureka: keeping its valuable local specialisations and core DNA intact. Eureka’s Austrian Chairmanship is held by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG): Austria's national contact point for Eureka.

The EUREKA Network has a broad set of instruments, which are the different mechanisms used to run calls. Countries can decide which instruments to use to support their collaboration.

  • EUREKA Network Projects enable bottom-up bilateral and multilateral projects between any country in the EUREKA Network in any area.
  • EUREKA Eurostars enables collaborative projects (2 cut off dates per/year) in any area with projects led by Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
  • EUREKA Clusters are industry driven public private partnerships which build communities and convene projects between SMEs and large industry in specific technology and market areas.
  • EUREKA GlobalStars calls enable collaborative projects between any country in the EUREKA Network and countries outside the EUREKA Network in any area.
Eureka's programmes are flexible and open to startups, SMEs, large companies, research organisations and universities. Discover here all the national and regional funding bodies in the Eureka network and check out here the open calls for projects
