Pre-submission proposal review
We will provide an in depth review of your draft proposal, which includes recommendations for improvement.
Sources of finance
The range of R&D grants is confusing and the application processes can be complex. Our in-depth knowledge of the European Commission’s Framework Programme can significantly improve your chances of making a successful application, while we can also match your skills to R&D projects that require partners.
Strategic consortium building (Partner searching)
We have developed a number of techniques for specialised partner searching. We undertake consortium building directly, by utilising networks and contacts to build partnerships capable of delivering high level projects and also provide tailored partnering opportunities to clients.

With years of experience in assisting clients with successful funding applications, our consultants will guide you through the process and maximise your chances of winning financial support for your R&D projects.
