The process of developing a Horizon 2020 proposal can be complex. It involves many different stages from start to finish all within very strict time-frames.
We follow a process that ensures that the proposal covers all aspects of each evaluation criteria (Excellence, Impact, and Implementation), while highlighting the commercial potential of your product and European Impact.
We will assist to define a clear strategy and structure of the project that starts with the problem that you are addressing, presenting your proposition, quantifying the impact of your solution on the applying company and society.
The proposal services review that we offer is conducted by an EU expert with extensive experience in evaluating Horizon 2020 proposal. We will provide you with written feedback on:
o Areas that need to be emphasized in the proposal to be in line with the requirements for SME Instrument Phase 1 or Phase 2
o Suggestions to ensure that the proposal has a clear, coherent story
o Recommendations on how to facilitate ‘vertical reading’ (headings to use)
o Recommendations on the graphical way to present the information (tables, charts, etc.)
o Grammar and typo corrections/ rephrasing sentences for clarity
It includes a 1 hour conference call to discuss the feedback and answer any questions that you have about the proposal, application process, etc.
We work with highly innovative small or medium enterprises (SMEs): start-ups, established companies looking to diversify their offering, R&D companies wanting to reach commercialisation of their innovation and to deploy it to global markets.
