Project Design

project-designEU CORE also offers personalised support for public and private bodies in turning their "grass-root" project idea into a sustainable and coherently-planned project proposal for timely submission within funding programmes at local, national or supra-national level.
Based on a wide field experience and broad inside knowledge of main international and national funding programmes, EU CORE is endowed with all the necessary competences and resources to assist different types of applicants in making their proposal successful within the appropriately identified call for proposals – by adapting it to the chosen programme's priorities, by developing its mid- to long-term approach, by planning the most appropriate communication/visibility strategy, by supporting the drafting of a coherent project budget.
