Seeking Proposals for EUREKA Eurostars Projects (Feb’23 – Apr’23)




Eurostars is part of the European Partnership on Innovative SMEs. The partnership is co-funded by the European Union through Horizon Europe.

Eurostars is a funding instrument that supports innovative SMEs and project partners (large companies, universities, research organisations and other types of organisations) by funding international collaborative R&D and innovation projects. By participating, organisations can access public funding for international collaborative R&D projects in all fields.

To have a successful Eurostars application you must:

  • Define your project idea
  • Collaborate internationally, sharing expertise
  • Develop products, processes or services that can be easily commercialised

Your project consortium must have an innovative SME in the leading role, but it can also include other types of organisations like large companies, universities, research organisations and more.

More information on Eurostars can be found here.

Technology Specification

The project consortium must involve at least one company from Singapore and one company from another Eurostars country, independent from each other. Each project partner should contribute no more than 70% of the total project contribution. 

Under this programme, Enterprise Singapore will support up to 70% of the Singaporean company’s total qualifying project costs. To be eligible for support, the applicant must fulfil ALL of the following:

  • Be a business entity that is registered and physically present in Singapore;
  • ≥ 30% local equity held directly or indirectly by Singaporean(s) / Singapore PR(s), determined by the ultimate individual ownership; and
  • Be financially able to see a project through to completion.

Call Details

Application Process

  1. Contact your national or regional funding body using the form available on the Eureka website to discuss your project idea, funding in your country, legal and financial viability and eligibility.
  2. Create an account on our project platform to open a new application. The innovative SME leading your consortium must open your application and invite the other partners to collaborate on the online application form.
  3. On the platform, complete the application form (in English) and submit it electronically. The portal allows you to save, revisit and edit your application form before you submit it, giving you time to confirm all information is correct.
  4. Upload annexes by attaching them to your online application form. You must complete and upload:
  • a signed commitment and signature form,
  • (if you are an SME) an SME declaration.

Depending on what country you are based in, you may need to add a financial annex:

  • financial reports,
  • (if you are a start-up) a business plan,
  • other.

Contact your national funding body to discuss which documents you need to provide. If you are an organisation that is 100% publicly funded, you will not have to provide a financial annex.

You can also include annexes to support your project application:

  • a technical annex (related to the project),
  • a Gantt chart.

5. Submit your completed application form before the deadline.

You can submit your R&D and innovation project application between 10 February 2023 and 13 April 2023 at 14:00 CEST via the project platform
