The EUREKA Clusters CELTIC-NEXT, EUROGIA, ITEA3, SMART and PENTA-EURIPIDES², together with a number of EUREKA Public Authorities, have launched a Call for innovative projects in the AI domain. The aim of this Call is to boost the productivity & competitiveness of European industries through the adoption and use of AI systems and services.

Consortiums including minimum two companies from different Eureka participating countries can be funded. However, usually project groups are much wider, consisting of SME's, large companies, and universities or research organisations. Projects with eligible costs in the range of 2-8 M€ are expected, though projects outside this range may also be submitted for evaluation. A great number of European countries have joined the Call, including Turkey, and also the Eureka associated countries Canada, South Korea, South Africa and Singapore.

Business Finland can grant funding for Finnish partners in project consortiums. National funding criteria apply, including the criteria for Co-Innovation Projects. No fixed budget is reserved for this call, and applications are competing for funding with other applications submitted to Business Finland. The Finnish partners in project consortiums must contact Business Finland one month before deadline, ie. 28 May 2021 at the latest.
