Our Services

How we help you to win public grants:

Generating project ideas

We translate your goals and objective into fundable (sub-) projects and match them with suitable funding programs without losing sight of your goals as a company or research institution. Sometimes this means that we have to tell you that it is not possible to fund your endeavour.

Identifying suitable grant programs and calls

We do research on suitable funding programs and open calls for your projects, together with you investigate success rates to be expected, budgets ranges as well as a realistic time frame in order to select the optimal call and funding program.

Preparing your project and building a consortium

We help to identify, select and integrate necessary partners as well as to structure the project and allocate tasks - always adjusted to the selected call.

Preparing the proposal

With your help, we prepare a promising proposal with a matching and call-compliant budget and implementation plan. We provide support in answering any questions or preparing you for presentations of your proposal.

Managing your project

Once your project is approved, we can assist in project management as well as in both technical and financial reporting if needed.
