EU funding services
Besides the various Dutch funding programmes, bizzEUROPE has developed specific expertise in different European Union funded programs and offers you the following (EU) funding services based on 'no cure no pay' and/or hourly fee:

1. Project development: which programme is best suitable for your project idea; how can your project idea better fit into the framework of a specific programme; how many and what type of project partners are necessary; will the project have sufficient impact; how much budget is required and available etc. If possible (i.e. depending on the programme) bizzEUROPE will contact the programme officers for feedback on your project concept.   

2. Writing project proposals: filling in the project application forms according to the specific programme guidelines; this includes extensive research with regard to the subject of your project (state-of-the-art) and developing outputs and deliverables which can be successfully implemenmted by your organisation and which directly promote the aim of the funding programme.

3. Project management: administrative support; monitoring project indicators and spending; technical and financial reporting; preparing and organising project meetings. Many EU programmes (e.g Interreg, EFRD) require 6 monthly progress reports.

4. Project communication. Most funding programmes require specific project communication actions (i.e. a communication plan) which informs the project target groups and general public about how the project is funded. Developing effective communication (online) tools is therefore essential.
