EUREKA is a pan-European political initiative with the overall aim to raise the productivity and competitiveness of Europe’s industries and national economies in the world market by supporting market-oriented R&D&I projects across all technological sectors. The EUREKA-network unites 39 member countries and the European Union as its 40th member. 

EUREKA-Hungarian Chairmanship

One of the main priorities of the Hungarian Chairmanship is to increase the number of industry-driven R&D projects, in particular those with a strong participation of European SMEs. In this context a fruitful cooperation has started between EUREKA and the European Technology Platforms active in food, ICT, manufacturing, energy and water-related technologies applying a multidisciplinary approach with the purpose of generating new EUREKA or EUROSTARS projects in food-related technologies. The „Food for Future  - Future of Food” conference is a stocktaking event in this process based on multidisciplinary dialogue between the different technological areas with a clear ambition to generate business cases/opportunities for the industry.
