Eureka Network Projects

About this programme

The Eureka Network Projects is a flexible funding programme for international R&D projects. This programme eases collaboration between organisations in Eureka countries and offers the freedom to design your project proposal and build your ideal consortium. We have various bilateral/multilateral CIP calls under the Eureka Network Projects (e.g. Singapore–Türkiye, Singapore–Republic of Korea, etc.).

Singapore companies are welcome to participate and collaborate with corporates from participating countries in the respective bilateral calls.

Eureka Applied Quantum Technology Call 2024

The Eureka Applied Quantum Technology Call 2024 is now open for applications. It is led by Innofund, which is the funding agency of Denmark.

The Eureka Applied Quantum Technology Call 2024 aims to develop quantum technology that outperforms or accelerates existing technologies and hence contribute to solving specific problems relevant for industry, science and society.

The call covers “Enabling ECS Technologies”, which support quantum technologies mentioned below, notably (non-exhaustive list):

  1. Low-power electronics, low-noise electronics (including LNAs), HEMTs, fast and precise DACs, RF-electronics, THz-electronics, well-characterised cryo-electronics
  2. Efficient integration of light sources and (single-photon) detectors, fast, low-loss photonic routers and switches
  3. Development of ICs, PICs and light sources at mutually compatible wavelengths, including telecommunications (C-band) and 935 nm (practical for solid-state sources)
  4. Cryo-compatible, low-outgassing packaging and shielding, packaging and bonding, good thermal management solutions.

Participating countries include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Lithuania, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Türkiye, and the UK.

Singapore companies keen to embark on joint innovation projects with companies from any one or more of the participating countries can receive support by participating in the Eureka Applied Quantum Technology Call 2024.


About Eureka Network

Eureka Network is the world’s biggest public network for international cooperation in R&D and innovation, present in over 45 countries.

Eureka was established in 1985 as an agreement between 18 countries and the European Commission to foster competitiveness and market integration and to encourage R&D cooperation. Since then, it has expanded to include 47 countries (in Europe and beyond) who share the same goals and provide national funding to organisations to support international industry-led R&D and co-innovation.


Eligibility

The project consortium must involve at least one company from Singapore and one company from any one of the other participating countries. All companies should be independent from each other. Each project partner should contribute no more than 70% of the total project contribution.

All Singapore companies must meet all of the following eligibility criteria in order to apply:

  • Business entity registered and operating in Singapore
  • Company has at least 30% local equity held directly or indirectly by Singaporean(s) and/or Singapore PR(s), determined by the ultimate individual ownership
  • Company is financially ready to start and complete the project
  • Companies must cooperate on a joint innovation project that will focus on developing innovative products and applications within civilian purposes

How to apply

To submit an application for the Singapore-Austria Eureka Bilateral Call, both Singapore companies and their Austrian partner(s) have to submit a joint application through the Eureka SmartSimple platform.

In addition, Singapore companies must also complete the following procedures:

  1. Fill in the preliminary assessment form here by 30 April 2024
  2. Thereafter, when notified, submit the full application via the Business Grants Portal (BGP) by 9 May 2024, with the following documents:
    • Latest ACRA business profile (retrieved within six months from application date)
    • Applicant’s latest and previous two years audited financial statements (Company and Group level), or official management account
    • Supplementary Project Proposal Form (please find the template here)  
    • Relevant key quotations (e.g. equipment and software, materials and consumables, professional services)

Concurrently, all foreign partner companies will have to adhere to the additional application requirements outlined by their respective countries’ funding agencies. Both agency-specific submissions and the Eureka SmartSimple applications have to be completed for the application to be considered complete.
