Eureka is the world’s biggest public network for international cooperation in research, development, and innovation (R&D&I), present in over 45 countries. It is a decentralised intergovernmental organisation aiming to boost the productivity and competitiveness of industries by funding and supporting international collaborative market-driven R&D&I projects.

This call for projects has been launched following Eureka’s Network projects framework based on mutual consent between participating national funding bodies.

The national funding bodies (NFB) from Sweden, Israel, Switzerland, and Singapore have allocated funding for organisations collaborating on international R&D&I projects in the field of alternative proteins.

Eligibility:

Eureka has limited eligibility criteria for organisations participating in a Network projects consortium:

  • Your project idea must represent international cooperation in the form of a specific project.
  • The project must be directed at researching or developing an innovative product, process or service with the goal of commercialisation.
  • The project must have a civilian purpose.
  • Your consortium must include at least two independent legal entities from a minimum of two Eureka countries.
  • No single organisation or country can be responsible for more than 70% of the project budget.

Swiss companies and universities are invited to establish international R&D cooperation with partners from the participating countries to solve challenges in this domain.
