EUREKA as such has no means to provide funding to projects, but projects that receive an EUREKA-label can turn to their national or regional government for additional funding. Projects within the EUREKA-network can be based on
– individual, bottom-up projects between partners, independent of timings or themes
– thematic platforms (specific technological or industrial sector): EUREKA-UMBRELLA’S
– EUREKA-CLUSTERS: certain industry sectors looking for long-term projects (e.g. SMART: advanced manufacturing)
