A new Eureka Globalstars call is open for applications. UK-registered organisations can apply for a share of £850,000 to develop collaborative innovation projects with organisations from Taiwan. Austria, Canada and the Netherlands are also participating in this call.


This competition aims to increase collaboration between UK and Taiwanese businesses and encourage innovation and deployment of novel digital technologies for manufacturing. Projects must have high market potential and develop either an innovative product, technology-based application or technology-based service.

Innovate UK will fund a portfolio of projects that focus on one or more of the following themes:

  • smart manufacturing
  • sensing
  • chemicals
  • industrial Internet of Things (IoT)
  • artificial intelligence (AI)
  • virtual and augmented reality
  • robotics and automation
  • additive manufacturing
  • machine learning
  • big data
  • wider digital technologies, including block chain and enterprise architecture
  • industrial digital technology capability and capacity in both the UK and Taiwan
  • enabling continued growth in key Taiwanese manufacturing sectors, including electronics, energy, and smart machinery
  • key sectors including pharmaceuticals, energy offshore wind, smart machinery, food and drink

UK registered organisations can apply for up to £300,000 for projects that last from 3-24 months. In addition, all projects must be collaborative. Specifically, they should involve at least two independent organisations (one company from Taiwan and one company from one of the participating Eureka countries/regions).
