    • Stage 2
      Independent assessment will take place in both the UK and Sweden. Panels will include a set of independent experts from the UK and Sweden.
      At the same time projects will be assessed by panels led by the ATI in the UK and Innovair in Sweden for eligibility against the respective national strategies. National decisions will be made at this stage.
    • Stage 3
      A joint UK/SE consensus panel will agree which projects to recommend for funding. It should be noted that a portfolio approach will be used in selecting the projects to be progressed. Successful projects will then be put forward for a EUREKA label, a formal decision made by the EUREKA Network.
