2 > 2 EUREKA in glance A European Research Programme > Not an EU-Programme (but complementarity and co-operation - ERA) > Bottom-up project generation by partners (no thematic calls) > Flexible mechanism and lack of bureaucracy > Market orientation > Target group: mainly industry - particular attention to SMEs > Funding: public, private, own (each member country has national criteria and schemes for co-financing)

3 > 3 CERN CERN Positioning of European R&D Programmes and Frameworks Innovation Basic research EU FP COST European Research Labs and Institutions JRC NationalR&DProgrammes esa EUREKAEUREKA COST

4 > 4 The past is history >Established in 1985 >An initiative of French President Mitterrand and German Chancellor Kohl >1 7 countries and the Commission of the European Communities

5 > 5 EUREKA programme >Intergovernmental network: 38 countries and the EU Commission (26 EU countries, 12 other European countries, European Commission) >Projects are nationally-financed >Results are market-oriented >Projects are (mostly) industry-driven, from the ‘bottom up’ principle

6 > 6 Intergovernmental network There are EUREKA offices in all 38 countries and at the European Commission (DG Research) >EUREKA national offices are usually based in the relevant Ministry (for industry, economy, science, research…) of each member country

7 > 7 EUREKA member countries Austria Belgium Croatia Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Estonia European Commission Finland France Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia Germany Greece Hungary Iceland Ireland Israel Italy Latvia Lithuania Luxembourg Malta Monaco The Netherlands Norway Poland Portugal Romania Russian Federation San Marino Serbia Slovakia Slovenia Spain Sweden Switzerland Turkey Ukraine United Kingdom EUREKA NIP Albania, Bulgaria

8 > 8 Market oriented EUREKA addresses applied /industrial and not basic research projects The result of a EUREKA project must be a marketable - product, process or service

9 > 9 Nationally financed Financing for EUREKA projects comes from two main sources: National public sources (national research and innovation programmes, innovation funds, etc.) Investment by participants ( industry in R&D )

10 > 10 Financial contribution by EUREKA members ( )

11 > 11 EUREKA supports three types of projects Cluster Projects >Long-term, strategically-significant initiatives >Large number of participants, many from Europe’s major companies >Develop generic technologies of key importance to European competitiveness Individual Projects (E!1782; E!1784…) >Small, shorter-term projects >Involve participants from at least two member countries >Result in a product, process or service with a significant advance in their sector Eurostars Projects >Small, short-term projects, involving participants from at least two member countries >Consortium leader is an R&D-performing SME >Programmed jointly with the European Commission The three pillars of EUREKA

12 > 12 EUREKA Cluster projects Long-term, strategically-significant initiatives Road maps, White book,… The model for JTIs Large number of participants, many from Europe’s major companies (e.g. Philips, Alcatel, Siemens, Infineon, etc...) Develop generic technologies of key importance for European competitiveness

13 > 13 EUREKA Cluster projects > Information technologies > Communication technologies > Biotechnology > Energy Websites of EUREKA Cluster projects

14 > 14 EUREKA Individual project A EUREKA Individual project is >international – partners from at least two of EUREKA's 39 members >small, short-term projects ( Meuro; months) >proposed, defined and managed by its consortium (project partners) >mainly industry-led >financed nationally >result in a product, process or service representing a significant advance in their sector

15 > 15 EUREKA bottom-up approach The EUREKA project consortium decides >Project objectives and content >Who they choose to work with >How much it will cost >How long it will take >How it will be managed >How risks and results will be shared >Ownership of results (IPR, etc.)

16 > 16 Who decides on Individual projects? Group of the High Level Representatives EUREKA High Level Representatives act on behalf of government (ministers) Meet four times a year to review project applications, decide the strategy, money,… Award the internationally-recognised EUREKA label National funding decision

17 > 17 EUREKA Individual projects building cross-border partnerships >Some 26 billion Euro of public and private money invested since 1985 >Over individual projects generating ground- breaking products, processes and services > project partners, of which 45% are SMEs
