Singapore companies can now receive funding support in joint innovation projects in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) domain with entities from 13 other EUREKA countries.
Singapore, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, South Africa, South Korea and Turkey have announced their participation in the EUREKA Clusters AI Call – an initiative that seeks to develop, adapt, and utilise AI in various focus areas. This call will be open from 1 March to 28 June 2021, with funding decisions to be made by early 2022.
The call is open to joint proposals that apply AI to a large number of application areas, including but not limited to Agriculture, Circular Economy, Climate Response, Cybersecurity, E-Health, Electronic Component and Systems, ICT and applications, Industry 4.0, Low Carbon Energy, Safety, Transport and Smart Mobility, Smart Cities, Software Innovation, and Smart Engineering.
EUREKA is an intergovernmental network launched in 1985. It aims to support market-oriented R&D and innovation projects by industry, research centres and universities across all technological sectors. It is composed of 45 member states, including the European Union (represented by the European Commission), three associated states (Canada, Chile, South Africa), and one partner country (South Korea).
Interested Singapore companies must partner entities from at least one of the other 13 participating EUREKA countries on a joint innovation project within the AI domain.
All Singapore companies must meet the eligibility criteria for the Enterprise Development Grant (EDG) in order to apply.
Singapore companies that have an idea and are looking for partners; OR are interested in participating in a project but have yet to develop a proposal, should also refer to the EUREKA Clusters AI Call Brokerage Tool or submit an enquiry to IPI Singapore.
