It is composed of 41 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 two of the 15 participating EUREKA countries on a joint innovation project within the AI domain.
