Eurostars is a public funding programme designed to propel R&D performing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the 36 Eurostars participating states and partner countries.

The fund is open to projects led by an SME, which are developing an innovative new product, process or service with a civilian purpose, with a goal to rapidly enter the market. Projects must have a duration of 36 months or less.

While open to a range of disciplines, almost 40% of projects funded are medicine and health related.

Applicants must comply with the EU definition of an SME. In addition, they must have a proportion of their personnel dedicated to R&D activities. Further details on which companies qualify are provided in the link.

The application deadline for the current call is 28 February.

This initiative is co-funded by the national budgets of the 36 Eurostars countries, and the European Union through Horizon 2020.
