This call for project proposals is setup within the framework of GlobalStars, one of the programmes of EUREKA. This virtual marketplace and matchmaking is made possible by cooperation with Enterprise Europe Network.
Eureka is an international network established in 1985 as an agreement between 18 countries to foster European competitiveness and integration and to encourage R&D cooperation. Since then, we have expanded to include over 45 countries in Europe and beyond who share the same goals and have national funding available to organisations who apply through our programmes.
Globalstars is a EUREKA programme with calls for projects (sometimes thematic) with countries outside of our network, in this case: India. Applicants can benefit from collaboration with organisations working in a range of leading and emerging markets.
