Are you an R&D performing SME* looking for funding?


If yes, then the Eurostars Programme can be interesting for you!

This programme, targeted to SMEs needs offers funding for the development of new products, processes and services and the access to transnational and international markets. The website  provides all information needed, including guidance on how to apply and you can also check out previously funded projects. And it even has its own blog!   The next deadline is 22 September 2011, so check out the website for more information if you are interested!

* Research-performing SMEs are SMEs which dedicate at least 10% of their turnover or full-time equivalent (FTE) to research activities.

    Good to learn about more funding programmes, but how to know if my company is counted as an SME?

    Thank you for your question. SME stands for Small and medium-sized enterprises, and there is an European definition to follow.
    You can find it here http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/sme/facts-figures-analysis/sme-definition/index_en.htm
