How to apply for Eurostars in Spain

Eurostars is part of the European Partnership on Innovative SMEs. The partnership is co-funded by the European Union through Horizon Europe.

Applying to our Eurostars funding programme is designed to be quick and simple. In your application, you can tell us more about your organisation and the innovative new product, process or service you plan to research or develop.

1. Contact the Centre for the Development of Technology and Innovation (CDTI) using the form below to discuss your project idea, funding rules in your country, financial viability and eligibility.

2. Create an account (one per project application) on our project platform.

3. On the platform, complete one application form per consortium (in English) and submit it electronically. The portal allows you to save, revisit and edit your application form, giving you time to confirm all information is correct.

4. Upload annexes by attaching them to your online application form. You must complete and upload:

  • a signed commitment and signature form
  • (if you are an SME) an SME declaration

Depending on what country you are based in, you may need to add a financial annex:

  • financial reports
  • (if you are a startup) a business plan
  • other

Contact CDTI to discuss which documents you need to provide and how to submit them. You may need to submit documents directly to CDTI rather than attaching them to your application form. If you are an organisation that is 100% publicly funded (e.g. universities, hospitals, etc.), you will not have to provide a financial annex.

You can also include annexes to support your project application:

  • a technical annex (related to the project)
  • a Gantt chart

5. Submit your completed application form before the deadline.

6. A few days after the Eurostars deadline, the CDTI will request that Spanish organisations send a declaration of eligibility. If you do not submit this declaration in time, you will fail the national financial viability check and will not be eligible to receive national funding.

7. CDTI does not need a financial annex or business plan for Spanish organisations. However, CDTI may officially request additional information to assess your financial viability after the Eurostars deadline.

8. After your Eurostars project has been approved, every Spanish company must submit a national funding application, even if there is more than one Spanish participant in the same project.

9. The funding call is based on a general procedure for providing grants at national level, so there are several phases (registration, amendments, funding proposal and final decision) that should be accomplished.

A funding decision is made 12-16 weeks after the national funding registration deadline.
