Description:

EUREKA is an European initiative that was launched in 1985. The aims are the stimulation of the research efforts of enterprises and boosting their innovation capacity. EUREKA helps them to align their resources and with the collaboration with research institutes for developing advanced technologies and market oriented products.

'Bottom up' is the basic rule of EUREKA. Participants are fully responsible for defining and implementing their scientific and technological cooperation projects. So they decide themselves the best way to new markets.

EUREKA also acts as a forum for direct dialogue between governments and standardization bodies, between EUREKA participants who aim for industrial standards and those who are hampered by technical, commercial or administrative obstacles.
