EUROSTARS: supporting research-performing SMEs

EUROSTARS is a funding and support programme specifically dedicated to research-performing SMEs.


The programme targets market-driven projects and has a bottom up approach: it is up to the participating companies and institutions to propose their projects in any domain of research and development.


The projects must be coordinated by an SME which invest 10% or more of full-time equivalent or annual turnover in research activities.


Each participant is funded according to the national funding rules. In France, EUROSTARS takes the form of a grant covering 40% of full costs for SMEs (30% for non- research-performing SMEs) and 40% - in the limit of 100 000 euros per participant - for research organisations and universities.


There are two application submission deadlines each year. Next deadline for submission: September 22, 2011.


France Europe Innovation is at your disposal to help you position yourself on this program, set up your own Eureka project and manage it once it has been labeled. Click here for more details.
