EUREKA is a leading open platform for international cooperation in innovation. It is present in over 40 countries and remains to this day the only initiative of its kind committed to the ‘bottom-up’ principle – ensuring that any R&D project with a good business plan receives the support it deserves, independent of its technological nature, or the type of organisations involved.
EUREKA’s aim is to enhance European competitiveness by fostering innovation-driven entrepreneurship in Europe, between small and large industries, research institutes and universities. Since its creation in 2013, EUREKA has helped 219 UK SMEs. In 2017, it has helped Bristish companies receive €17m in public-private investment. [source]
