A successful grant application always begins with an analysis in which we assess the project's potential to be granted EU funding from the European Commission, national funding schemes or other types of corporate support mechanisms. An important part of the grant analysis is to, through dialogue, identify the strong and weak elements of the project and to draw up the strategy on how to maximize its funding potential. The results of the grant analysis are presented to the project owner as a comprehensive decision basis upon which the right decision concerning the possible grant application can be made.
We prepare the grant application so that it not only meets the formal requirements, but is also convincing and stands out among competitors. We participate actively in the dialogue with the funding authority and ensure that all documents are submitted on time. Within Horizon 2020 projects and other complex international R&D, innovation or demonstration projects in the areas of ICT, Cleantech or Life Science we coordinate the project content and information related to international project partners.
To assure the optimal workflow in all assignments, we use modern and secure IT tools, such as digital project management tools and protected cloud solutions.
All projects awarded EU funding are subject to progress reporting and financial reporting. The formal correctness of the reports is as important as the presentation of key milestones in the project, description of deliverables achieved and information about any obstacles and hindrances encountered in the project implementation phase. Entrepreneurs sometimes find it difficult to navigate through complex reporting guidelines. Our experts assist the client in the whole lifecycle of the project and take care of both simple quality assurance tasks and complex project accounting and reporting procedures.
INFORMATION ABOUT EU SUBSIDIES AND GRANTS
There are thousands of different EU subsidies and grants, including regional, national and international funding schemes. Not everything is interesting to everyone. During our long time in the EU line of business, we have learned what entrepreneurs need to know and how to pack the information so that the addressee’s benefits are maximized. We prepare straightforward and understandable information material and organize workshops for key employees of a company or a corporation.
