Eureka Call For Lightweight Innovation Projects
SUBMISSIONS CAN BE MADE UNTIL 25 APRIL 2023, 12:00 CEST
The Eureka call is open from Wednesday, 25 January until 25 April 2023. By participating in the Eureka call, Flanders wants to encourage companies to carry out development projects with partners from the participating regions and with a lightweight innovation angle.
The Eureka call is a project call for R&D lightweight technology projects. Why? Lightweight technology is the key enabling technology that provides environmental-friendly solutions, while at the same time adding commercial value, across all industries. Driven by mobility-linked challenges, lightweight technology is the path to fundamental resource savings.
Lightweight technologies should target the following effects: 1) optimise energy and resource efficiency, 2) create sustainable value circles, and 3) bolster lightweight integration in more areas.
Interested? Be sure to take part in the international webinar on 8 February.
