GlobalStars Call Brazil 2018

This year, Switzerland is participating in a GlobalStars Call with selected member countries of the EUREKA Initiative as well as three prominent partnering agencies in Brazil (Finep, Embrapii, and Fapesp). All projects with Brazil are welcome, with a particular focus to projects of Micro and Nanoelectronics.

Application Deadline: 31 October 2018.

The Global Stars Call between Brazil and Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland is addressing industrial and academic partners from participating countries to implement R&D projects together. Setting up a Global Stars-project requires at least two companies – one from Brazil and one from the EUREKA countries listed above – and an ambitious market-oriented research project. National and regional agencies from these countries will offer funding for selected countries to enable an intensified collaboration.
