Eureka global stars call for joint R&D projects with Brazil

The international EUREKA network has opened a call for joint R&D projects with Brazilian EMBRAPII – Brazilian Company of Research and Industrial Innovation. In this call, Finnish partners can apply for funding for R&D and innovation collaborations with partner(s) from Brazil. Each project consortium must include at least one enterprise from Finland and one enterprise from Brazil. As the call benefits from the Funding Programmes available through EMBRAPII, the Brazilian consortium must also include an EMBRAPII Unit contracted by the participating enterprise from Brazil.


Business Finland is in particular anticipating applications related to innovative uses of forest biomass, but the call is open for all technological fields, like for example health technologies.
