That’s why our support doesn’t end with supplying you with data and tools – we are in this for the long term to assist you through the lifecycle of your project. We support the identification of funding opportunities and the formation of national and international project consortia. We advise on requirements, European rules and regulations. We also help with drafting business cases and offer support during the lobbying process.
