Services | Calypso FP7
This eBook contains our experience in FP6 and FP7, which I usually use with our clients to help them with FP7 Proposal Preparation, and these are proven templates, guidelines, checklists. Usually, we are paid thousands of Euro to transfer this knowledge to my clients. So, we compiled all this experience in one eBook (http://www.fp7ebook.eu), which contains the templates, checklists, tips, and the instructions of how to use them.
Training Programs: these programs, usually around one day will help your organization to get started in FP7. Some of the topics addressed are “how to get started”. “Aligning the research agenda of your organization”, “instruments”, “how to find partners”, “how to write a proposal”, “negotiation and financial management”. We try to organize these sessions in conjunction with your NCP or in conjunction with an information day. This will also give you the opportunity to share with other organization, learn form them and network, and get information about the help and assistance available from the NCP.
Getting started in FP7: This is specific service tailored to the need of your organization and the area of expertise. We will help you select the right consortium and the right project, and assist you step by step. Usually, this service is done in conjunction of the NCP. In some cases, being involved within the wrong consortium and/or an inexperienced coordinator could create more harm than good.
Reviewing Proposal prior to submission: this is a great value service. What is more frustrating than spending weeks writing a proposal with partners, and not being selected as project, because of missing information, or of mis-applying some of the rules, of non-understanding of the review process. We offer this service, and we check the parts of the proposal and make recommendations of the different sections. To get the most benefits from this service, send your proposals at least 2 weeks prior to the submission.
Writing of proposal full support: this service is provided to support your organization and the full consortium in the process of writing a proposal. Typically, partners will focus on the idea and will develop the best scientific and technological solution, underestimating the other aspects of the proposal, which are the management, the objectives, the impact, exploitation sections. We will support this process from the initial meeting, to the information required, to the coordination of the writing, the timelines, etc. We are using a proven methodology and support this with proven tools, guidelines and checklists.
