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

Deadlines in 2021

The three application deadlines this year have expired. We expect to open for EUopSTART at the end of January / beginning of February 2022 with the first deadline before Easter. We expect two deadlines more during 2022.

You can already apply when the work programme is prepublished

You can submit your application for funding from EUopSTART once the EU has prepublished the work programme on the Funding & Tenders portal, and the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science opens for EUopSTART applications. In the work programme, you can see the EU calls and deadlines for the next two years. At the moment, you can apply for funding from EUopSTART for EU calls with deadlines latest 31 December 2022.

When will you get an Answer?

Applicants can expect an answer to their application around 4-5 weeks after the deadline. Due to Corona, there will be a slightly extended casework time.
