Volume of funding: 2 Mio. Euro | Phase 2
EurA has given us very good and comprehensive support in our application for the SME-instrument from the very beginning...
.. without the outstanding expertise and performance of EurA we would not have made it to Brussels. The cooperation with EurA was excellent and we would use it again in the future. The support was competent and we felt well looked after. EurA has taken a lot of the work off our hands, which is much more than we expected in an EU project. A clear recommendation for all those who would like to apply for SME funding!
Johannes Emigholz, Co-Founder Silexica
There is a significant problem in the development of intelligent technologies such as autonomous vehicles or drones, because hardware development is far ahead of software development. Although the necessary powerful hardware - especially multi-core processors - is already available, there is a great deal of catching up to do when it comes to programming the software that is to run on hardware platforms with increasingly complex and heterogeneous components. Since there is no tool that can simulate the entire functionality of such platforms, ...
this often leads to system overloads and instability. Silexica is developing the solution: SLX is the first programming tool with full system simulation capabilities and is designed to provide unprecedented system information about the behavior of multiple applications running simultaneously on complex hardware platforms in an automated process. This enables the automation of tasks in addition to the optimal use of existing hardware and computing power. These tasks, which take several months even with the most modern methods, can now be performed in just a few hours. This makes SLX ideally suited for a wide range of applications in the automotive, embedded vision and aviation and defense sectors.
Volume of funding: 1,9 Mio. Euro | Phase 2
"The EurA team has guided us through the application process with confidence...
.. With high professional competence, quick understanding of our technology and a lot of commitment we could successfully master the complex application process! We would engage EurA again at any time for similar projects!
Michael Kroheck, CSO Creapaper
Creapaper is revolutionizing the paper and packaging industry with grass paper. The award-winning SME from Hennef has developed a new, purely mechanical process for obtaining a pulp for paper production from grass. Compared to paper production from wood, the life cycle assessment is much better than paper production from wood. During production,...
the consumption of energy and water is reduced by more than 90%, and unlike the production of pulp from wood, the use of chemicals is not necessary at all. In addition, the process and short transport distances save about 75% of CO2 emissions compared to wood pulp. Creapaper already supplies more than 20 paper mills in Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy with this ecologically and economically sound raw material. Especially companies in the food sector use packaging with a grass content throughout the country, such as Coca-Cola, REWE, EDEKA, ALDI, Lidl, and Penny.

„With EurA we have a real professional and reliable partner at our side. The employees are motivated and work on the project with enthusiasm".
Daniel Hannemann, CEO TESVOLT
The share of renewable energies such as wind and solar energy that are fed into the electricity grids is constantly increasing worldwide. However, these types of energy are very volatile, because depending on the time of day and weather, they supply different amounts of energy. On the one hand, this leads to an overload of the power grids and on the other hand, the electricity is not available as desired. Therefore, a highly flexible system is needed to compensate for these fluctuations and to ensure a safe ...
energy network with a power supply tailored to demand. Previous battery storage systems provide this flexibility, but are still too expensive compared to proven methods. With HiVOLT, TESVOLT has developed a new type of battery system based on high-voltage technology that offers significant cost and efficiency advantages over conventional systems. Savings are achieved, among other things, by eliminating transformers and reducing system costs through lower currents. As a result, this high-voltage lithium storage battery is highly economical and has the potential to revolutionize the storage market.

„EurA AG has 100% fulfilled its promised services. The good and target-oriented cooperation always ran without complications. EurA AG has supported us and helped us in our projects.“
Thomas Stark, Managing Director DELCOTEX Delius Techtex GmbH & Co. KG
MERKLE & PARTNER GbR
,,Very competent guidance in the correct selection of funding agencies, in the support of the application and formulation of outlines as well as applications for funded projects. The fast and professional cooperation with EurA AG should be emphasised. This enabled us to maintain our lead in simulation technologies over our competitors."
Stefan Merkle, Managing Director MERKLE & PARTNER GbR
"EurA AG's advice was always reliable and professional. Both on a technical and human level, the advice was consistently very good. Thanks to the support of EurA AG a successful research project could be implemented, which gave Harter GmbH a big market advantage. The friendly staff was always on hand to help with questions and problems. Also wishes and suggestions were always taken seriously and immediately taken up or implemented".

Modular ultrashort pulse laser technology
Network supported by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy
"The technology network supports ultrashort pulse lasers wherever it can: marketing for the technology, cooperations, R&D projects and future important topics such as training. This benefits not only us as a medium-sized company, but the entire industry."
Florian Lendner, Managing Director GFH GmbH
Ultra-short laser pulses with durations of a few femtoseconds (1 fs = 10-15s) to a few picoseconds (1 ps = 10-12s) allow completely new processing methods that are not possible with conventional tools. In the medical field, they open up completely new therapeutic possibilities, for example through high-precision and low-damage cuts in the eye...
An essential feature of these laser flashes are extremely high peak intensities, which can already be achieved with very low pulse energies due to the strong temporal compression. This enables high-precision material removal as well as the processing of temperature-sensitive materials without thermal damage in the surrounding area. In photovoltaic production, this high-precision processing leads to more efficient solar cells, in the manufacture of LEDs or computer chips the yield per wafer increases, and in one of the world's most common surgical procedures, cataract therapy, considerably more efficient and cost-effective procedures become possible. New therapeutic options for presbyopia are making reading glasses a serious competitor.
