The purpose of EUopSTART is to intensify the participation of Danish enterprises and research institutions in European research and innovation.

Deadlines in 2021

We have not yet decided on the EUopSTART deadlines for 2021 for two reasons: we don’t know the amount to be allocated to EuopSTART on the National Budget for 2021 and the work programmes 2021/22 in Horizon Europe have not yet been published.

When will you get an Answer?

Applicants who have applied for EUopSTART for the third cutt of 3 november can expect to receive an answer in the beginning of December. Due to the corona, it takes more time than usual to value the applications.
