Funding for your research project

Research that helps us find solutions to the challenges we face as a society requires adequate funding. The European Union has been running for decades programmes that fund research and innovation and help researchers advance in their careers. The EU provides funding for collaborative research projects and also grants for individual projects.

Collaborating with excellent partners around the world, with academia, industry, and civil society, is at the heart of the EuroTech Universities Alliance.

We support our researchers from DTU, EPFL, IP Paris, Technion, TU/e, and TUM in manifold ways for them to be successful in international funding schemes, first and foremost in Horizon Europe, the EU’s 2021-2027 framework programme.

While the support addresses researchers affiliated with a EuroTech University exclusively, in many cases it benefits their non-EuroTech partners, too. So teaming up with our universities pays off!

Further funding schemes for EuroTech researchers and start-ups

Independently from help for acquiring EU funds, we support activities that contribute to creating and deepening collaboration between people affiliated with our universities. Each university has a budget at its disposal for facilitating activities that involve several EuroTech Universities. If you are affiliated with a EuroTech University and have something in mind, feel free to reach out to your Operations Board member or or the corresponding Liaison Officer in the Brussels Office to discuss potential financial and practical support for your plans.

Next to this ad-hoc assistance, we run two dedicated programmes with fixed annual deadlines: the EuroTech Visiting Researcher Programme and the European Venture Programme. Learn more about both programmes on the following pages:

EuroTech Visiting Researcher Programme

We fund 1 to 4-week research stays at other EuroTech Universities. The application process is short and straightforward.

European Venture Programme

Each year, we offer 20 to 25 EuroTech start-ups exclusive access to the entrepreneurship expertise and networking resources available at the six EuroTech Universities.
