EU Funding advisory

While EU funding is available both at a national level as well as at a European level, national EU funded programmes are aimed at specific sectors such as tourism, agriculture and industry and would usually require the design of a business plan or action programme. Commission programmes such as Culture 2000, FP7 and Civitas require detailed programming and specialised project management in order for applicant companies to benefit from funding in different percentages of the proposed project.

Our partners provide advice to clients about opportunities for sourcing of EU funds for specific projects, having an intensive expertise in domains such as tourism, infrastructure and personell training.
