A new addition to the Horizon 2020 programme is a dedicated SME Instrument with up to €2.5m single company funding available. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) that are EU-based or established in a country associated to Horizon 2020 can now get EU funding and support for innovation projects that will help them grow and expand their activities into other countries – in Europe and beyond.
Eurostars is a programme that supports research-performing small and medium enterprises, which develop innovative products, processes and services, to gain competitive advantage. Eurostars does this by providing funding for transnational innovation projects; the products of which are then rapidly commercialised.
