"Improving your researchers’ success in acquiring increasingly scarce research funding"
Times are changing. Throughout Europe Universities and Research Institutes are confronted with declining fixed contributions for their research work. As a result competition to win additional incomes from project specific grants, incentives and contract research is growing rapidly. At the same time criteria for EU funding (Horizon 2020) have changed. Besides excellent science, EU funding nowadays strongly focusses on ‘impact’. Universities and Research Institutes will need to cooperate more fundamentally with industry to safeguard their future public funding incomes. As a consequence of the above developments many Universities and Research Institutes have recently been confronted with a drop in their funding application success rate. Is your organisation ready to compete for increasingly scarce sources of research funding? Are your researchers equipped for this new reality? Do you have (real) access to the best industry partners? We offer dedicated support to Universities and Research Institutes that will help your organisation optimize its public funding incomes for the years to come.
