We work closely with our clients to identify and match funding programmes to company strategies, ambitions and projects. We then guide the application process and provide comprehensive support with the writing and submission of grant applications. This can include the drafting and re-writing of a project business plan, finding the right project partners, dealing with administrative conditions and project management.
