EUREKA is not a direct funding instrument. Projects are funded in a de-centralised manner through the funding agencies of the member countries. There are several cluster calls open: The CELTIC-NEXT Cluster launches two calls for projects per year: one in spring and one in autumn in the field of next generation communications for the digital society. The SMART cluster is open for advanced manufacturing R&D projects. Once a year, ITEA offers the opportunity to submit research project proposals that fit in the domain of software innovation.

Hi, I'm wanting to apply for a grant for a start up. We aim to rescue up to 3000 pieces of furniture per year from Municipal Waste sites around the Stockholm area. Whilst offering up to 60 placements for people far from the employment market per year. How do I go about sending in a pitch? Thanks for any guidance. [email protected] best, David
