With our expertise in non-dilutive funding, we have helped thousands of life science researchers reach their ambitions. In total, we have raised more than €600 million in grants and subsidies for many international companies and academic institutions.

Review your proposals

We created the funding application review service because we understand that not in every case it makes sense to let us develop your proposal completely. The review service is possible for any grant, but a good alternative when you’re applying for an individual grant (eg. European Research Council (ERC) grants), when you’re making a re-submission, or just need some additional expert input (eg. additional market research or consortium handling). This service is available to all clients and for a range of programs, including: Horizon 2020, Eurostars, ERC, ZonMw, NWO, and more. This page is a summary of the service we provide in reviews and re-submissions, please contact us to get in touch with our experts to get more details.
