What is EUREKA/Eurostars?

The EUREKA Initiative aims to stimulate European competitiveness by supporting companies, research centers and universities that implement pan-European projects to develop innovative products, processes or services. Canada is one of the international partners associated to this initiative. The projects submitted to EUREKA are initiated by the industrialists themselves (in other words, according to a bottom-up philosophy) and not via calls for proposals.

The EUROSTARS program, developed by Eureka and the European Commission, is designed to support research and innovation-intensive, market-oriented SMEs with high growth potential involved in European partnership projects. This program targets projects led by research-intensive SMEs, i.e. SMEs that invest at least 10% of their turnover or employment in R&D. This is what distinguishes these projects from Eureka projects. Canada is also part of the Eurostar program.
