Proposal development can be a tricky and time-consuming process. Save time and money by getting it right from the beginning! We can help you via training, support you through the whole process and contribute to the proposal and also we can evaluate the draft proposal and make it better before submission.
We organise training courses focusing on project development - from finding a call and developing the project concept until submission of a proposal. All of our training courses are built on the practical experience we have gained from writing and winning proposals under different EU programmes.
We know it, because we do it...
We frequently organise tailor-made training courses at other organisations’ premises. With this approach, we are able to adapt the programme specifically to address your needs and level of experience.
You decide on the topics, the venue and the date(s). The typical duration of an in-house focusing on proposal development course is 1-2 days and you can combine it with personal consultation.
Consulting services on proposal preparation
We offer short- and long-term consultancy services related to EU proposal development. We have written and won proposals under the Framework Programmes (FP5-FP7), Lifelong Learning Programme (Grundtvig, Leonardo Da Vinci, etc), eContent, Intelligent Energy Europe, LIFE-III and LIFE+, Culture 2007, etc.
Our experts are available via phone/Skype for consultancy on an hourly basis or on a more long term basis to support you through all phases of proposal development. When signing up, please describe shortly the topic you would like to discuss in order to make sure that you will speak with the most suitable expert.
Consulting sessions at meetings
Sometimes we are invited to hold specific sessions at meetings where partners are working on consortium building and proposal development. This session would focus specifically on your project idea and the call you are targeting!
All FP7 projects have to fulfil the criterion of having a European dimension. In practice that means: consortia of partners from different countries can apply.
The proposals have to show a structured collaboration between a group of partners who share tasks and responsibilities. This means that finding the right partners and setting up the collaboration or consortium is a key preparatory task.
In order to have a good project and good collaboration:
- Partners need to complement one another
- They shall share an interest in the common problem they will be tackling in their research.
- The consortium has to establish a management structure and procedures adapted to the type and the complexity of the project
Our experts will help you to select the appropriate partners to your consortium.
With us you will build a complementary consortium that will effectively and efficiently implement your project.
