EUROSTARS is a EUREKA network programme and is the largest international funding programme for SMEs wishing to collaborate on R&D projects that create innovative products, processes or services for commercialisation.  

EUROSTARS is part of the European Partnership on Innovative SMEs. The partnership is co-funded by the European Union through Horizon Europe. 

This instrument supports innovative small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and their partners (companies, universities, or research centers) by promoting their international collaboration in financing research and experimental development projects. The aim of these projects is to create a new product, process, or service that can be commercialized in European and global markets. 

The project consortium is led by an innovative SME from one of the 37 countries of the EUROSTARS network. The project consortium is composed of entities from at least two participating countries with at least one organisation from the EU or Horizon Europe Associated Country
