The successful exploration of new foundations for radically new future technologies requires supporting a large set of early stage, high-risk visionary science and technology projects to investigate new ideas. Here agile, risk-friendly and highly interdisciplinary research approaches are needed with collaborations that are open to all sciences and disciplines and that dissolve the traditional boundaries between them.
Cut-off dates: 11/5/16, 17/1/17, 27/9/17
EUREKA Network Projects are transnational, market-driven innovative research and development projects, labelled by EUREKA and supported by the public administrations and public funding agencies that represent EUREKA in each of its 40+ member countries. To set up a EUREKA project there must be at least two partners from two different EUREKA countries. Partners can be of any type: SMEs, large companies, research institutions and universities. The network also promotes project results once the product of research reaches the market.
Closing date: various deadlines in the Autumn
