Eligible Projects

Eureka has limited eligibility criteria for organisations participating in a Network projects consortium:

  • Your project idea must represent international cooperation in the form of a specific project.
  • The project must be directed at researching or developing an innovative product, process or service with the goal of commercialisation.
  • The project must have a civilian purpose.
  • Your consortium must include at least one French and one Spanish company. Participation of research institutes/universities and other organizations is welcome as self-funded participants or subcontractors according to each country’s funding regulations.
  • No single organisation or country can be responsible for more than 70% of the project budget.
Eligibility Criteria

This call for projects has additional criteria for organisations to be eligible to receive funding:

  • Organizations from other countries may also participate, but they will not be funded by CDTI nor Bpifrance.
  • The French and Spanish partners must express their will to cooperate on the development of a new product, industrial process or service. The product, process or service must be innovative and there must be a technological risk involved.
  • The project should have an obvious advantage and added value resulting from the technological cooperation between the participants from the countries (e.g. increased knowledge base, commercial leads, access to R&D infrastructure etc.).
  • The participants are required to submit a signed consortium agreement before the project obtains the Eureka label.
