Securing of Research Funding
Based on our long-term experience in European R&D programmes, we offer organisations and consortia our services for securing research funding. Our services cover the whole process, from evaluating the project idea up to concluding the negotiations with the funding institution.
We check the relevance and substance of your project idea and analyse, if it is feasible under any of the EU funding programmes. This analysis will be the basis for all further steps.
Identification of the right funding programme
Based on the feasibility analysis, we identify the right funding programme for your project as well as the best suitable instrument. In Framework Programme 7, for example, this would be the choice of the appropriate Challenge and Objective and the right instrument in the open or forthcoming Calls.
We can help you define your project compatible to the chosen Call and strategic objective. This would also include support in structuring the project.
Eurescom has a large network of contacts to the major players in European ICT research. Through our network you will be able to assemble suitable partners in your consortium in order to create the critical mass for achieving your project goals. We help you to find the right partners. Furthermore, we support you in negotiating a consortium agreement among the partners.
Eurescom provides administrative and technical support for the consortium to work efficiently. This includes the management of IPRs, non-disclosure agreements and letters of intent.
Proposal writing and submission
We offer proposal writing by Eurescom’s experienced programme managers and editors, who will make sure that all formal requirements and evaluation criteria are met and that the proposal is written in the format required by the Commission. If required, Eurescom can also handle or control the electronic proposal submission.
Before submission, we recommend to have an independent test evaluation of your project proposal by our experienced evaluators.
Hearings and contract negotiation
When the proposal is accepted, hearings and contract negotiations pose another hurdle. We offer advice in the preparation for hearings and negotiations and can take over the writing of the technical description for the contract annex.
If you have any questions about our FP7 proposal preparation service or would like to receive an offer, please contact us via e-mail at services(at)eurescom.eu or call Mr. Milon Gupta at +49 6221 989-121.
