Creating opportunities for the brightest minds to connect is essential to accelerating the creation and adoption of new technologies. By fostering international collaboration, we are able to leverage complementary expertise and advance knowledge while building our economies to deliver innovative solutions in areas such as climate change, quantum computing and health technologies.

The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, is pleased to announce that Canada has been selected as a co-chair of Eureka for 2024–2025, with Germany. This is the first time in Eureka’s almost 40-year history that two countries will share the responsibility of leading the network. Co-chairing Eureka—the world’s largest public network for international cooperation in research and development—is an important milestone for Canada and an opportunity to highlight Canada’s leadership in research and innovation on the global stage.

Canada, in collaboration with its German partner, will help set the strategic direction for Eureka and continue to support efforts to enhance cooperation across the network. This will bring together innovators from Eureka countries to work together on market-driven industrial R&D. Innovators and partners from across the Eureka network will also have the opportunity to visit Canada and experience our vibrant innovation ecosystem.
