EUREKA is a leading open platform for international cooperation in innovation. The programme is an important tool of the European strategy and cooperation in applied and industrial research and innovation activities. EUREKA aims to promote international cooperation between European industrial enterprises, research institutes and universities, thus creating the conditions for increasing the performance and competitiveness of European industry and developing its common infrastructure.
EUREKA was established in 1985. The network currently counts 41 full members, including the European Union, and has 4 associated countries: Canada, Chile, South Africa and South Korea. Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina are National Information Points. EUREKA remains to this day the only initiative of its kind committed to the ‘bottom-up’ principle – ensuring that any R&D project with a good business plan receives the support it deserves, independent of its technological nature, or the type of organisations involved. The Czech Republic has been a full member since 1995. More information about the programme can be found here.
