The competition on the H2020 calls and especially on the SME instrument is fierce. A great idea is not enough to win. An excellent project proposal is essential. In order to prepare one, most winners have relied on expensice outsourced EU proposal experts. This means that organisations, that already have funding, also have the best chances to succeed. But it should be exactly the opposite - the EU funds should support those projects that cannot be realized due to lack of or insufficient funding.
We decided to change this and give everybody a fair opportunity to get their project funded. This is how the H2020 Manuals were born. Instead of charging from 5.000 to 15.000 EUR for counselling or preparing a project proposal, we decided to share and commodify our knowledge in the form of manuals and templates and make it accessible to a larger public at just a fraction of the regular cost. In this way we can help more great ideas succeed and give an opportunity to all those, who cannot afford a one-on-one consultancy.
Moreover, we decided to offer very affordable consultancy packages that maximise the benefits for the customer while keeping our costs down. In this way we can help many more customers improve their project and they get the most for their money.
