Proposal writing and project management

The EU offers funding for projects in different areas. But the search for European projects and partners and the subsequent development and coordination of these European projects can be complex.

Zabala is your perfect partner for proposal writing and project management

For this reason, at ZABALA Innovation, as experts in European project funding, we provide our clients advice on European projects. We identify the scope, based on our client’s idea, we write and develop the complete proposal, including the administrative, technical and commercial documents, dissemination and communication of results, and social assessment/impact, as well as the legal and financial aspects.

Once the proposal submitted to a European call for proposals has been approved, we take care of the administrative, financial and legal management of the European project, as well as the dissemination, communication and engagement strategies. We assist our clients in the search for partners, we prepare the grant agreement process and in the development of the project, we coordinate the work and communication between partners, and toward the stakeholders and society.

When a proposal has been successful in the corresponding call, we follow the project throughout its duration, we monitor its technical and financial progress through technical reports sent to the corresponding public administration. We liaise with the European Commission and attend consortium meetings, providing templates and guidelines to streamline internal procedures.

In addition, as part of our advisory function for European projects, we have the capacity to execute the dissemination of R&I results, and support the transfer of technology and the methods of exploiting R&I results with partners, as well as to develop social innovation tasks. Finally, we also manage the exploitation phase of the results and develop the strategy for using them for commercial purposes or for public policy development.
