Eurostars is an international programme for research and innovation intensive SME's.
Eurostars is open for market oriented development projects for all disciplines and themes. 35 European and a few countries outside of Europe participate in Eurostars.
At least two partners from two Eurostars participating states must participate in a project. At least 50% of the work load in the project must be conducted by the participating research intensive SME’s.
The duration of a Eurostars project can last up to three years (36 months) and a product or a service must be ready for market introduction no later than two years after the conclusion of the Eurostars-project.
There are two annual deadlines. One in March and one in September. You can expect a reply on your application four to five months after the application deadline. All Danish participants must register in IFD’s e-grant portal and upload a pdf version of the application form no later than 14 days after the application.
Who can apply for Eurostars funding?
- Only research intensive SME’s can hand in applications. But other type of partners are welcome to participate in the projects as well.
- A research intensive SME is defined by having at least 10% of its turnover or its full time employees (FTE) dedicated to research and innovation.
- If the SME has from 50 to 99 employees, 5 FTEs dedicated to research and innovation is sufficient.
