35 years of innovation beyond borders

35 years of innovation beyond borders

04 March 2021

In 1985, visionary politicians and policymakers came together with a seemingly simple idea: to mobilise the huge innovative potential of European businesses and academia through public support and promotion of cross border collaboration in applied R&D.

Thirty-five years and 7,500 R&D projects later, their brainchild lives on - and is more relevant than ever. It is called Eureka.

Eureka’s birthday week celebrates those great visionaries, and the international collaborative projects and 48 billion euro of public-private investment that their vision has so far spawned.

But it is also an opportunity to look to the future, to a new Eureka - and to the crucial role it has to play in the emerging European Innovation Area.
