About Eurostars

The goal of Eurostars is to support projects that lead to the development and commercialisation of innovations that positively impact people around the world. These projects must be led by an R&D-performing SME, in collaboration with at least one other partner from another Eurostars country. This includes working with other companies and/or research institutes to develop breakthrough products, processes, and services, and leveraging the experience of leading researchers and state-of-the-art equipment in universities and research institutes. Eurostars returns every year with two deadlines; the next deadline for Eurostars funding programme is Thursday, September 14.

Eligibility and Funding criteria for Eurostars

With an overall success rate of 30% and funding rates up to 100% (varying per country and type of organisation), Eurostars has proven to be an extremely attractive funding option for R&D-performing SMEs that have a high-potential, innovative idea. In contrast to other European funds, such as H2020, Eurostars applies a decentralised funding procedure, with eligibility criteria, funding amounts and funding rates varying per country. With a success rate of >70% for Eurostars proposals, ttopstart has developed tips, tricks, and best practices to increase your chances of Eurostars success.
