Logo_EUROSTARSThe synchronisation of national funding for the cut-off 4 of the Eurostars-2 programme has recently been concluded.

Of the 333 applications submitted for funding, 113 were positively evaluated and all 113 were selected to be funded by the programme, representing a success rate for projects above quality threshold of 100%. The overall success rate is 34%.

The Eurostars-2 programme is aimed at supporting research and development performing small and medium-sized enterprises. Applications can be submitted at any time but are evaluated twice a year. The next cut-off dates are 18 February and 15 September, 2016.

The Horizon 2020 – Eurostars-2 programme is jointly undertaken by several EUREKA countries and is aimed at supporting research and development performing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). R&D SMEs invest at least 10% of their turnover in R&D activities or dedicate at least 10% of its full-time equivalents to those activities.

Consequently, small and medium-sized enterprises are the main beneficiaries of cut-off 4: out of 354 funded organisations, 233 were SMEs, representing two thirds of the participants and 76% of the total project costs.
