Grant Funding & Partnering Services
This will involve a number of ‘brainstorming’ meetings to define the concept that you want and will be attractive to the EU.

Many of the European Union’s grant schemes require the research and development activity to be collaborative. There are rules on the make-up of a consortium which we will guide you through. We will ensure that the right team is put in place so that they deliver their part in your product development.
Once we have completed the above we will embark on the process of writing up an un-rejectable proposal. This will include structured workplans, broken down into detailed activities, defined work packages for each type of activity, specific deliverables and milestones related to each work package. We will create compelling arguments to show how this idea will improve European competitiveness, satisfy an urgent need amongst European organisations and achieve a rapid market penetration.
