Grant writing is a challenging area and there is no guarantee of success. Ceratium have supported grant proposals in Horizon 2020 (previously FP7), Innovate UK and DECC funding calls where success rates are often below 20% and sometimes below 10%. Recently in Horizon 2020 we have seen success rates below 5%. We do not win every time, but our results speak for themselves. Since 2010 we have helped business and academic clients secure over €65M of grant funding.
We use our knowledge and network of contacts across Europe, linking businesses and academics, to build strong consortia for clients with good project ideas. Our strengths are: interpreting client needs accurately; designing and implementing European engagement strategies; leading successful bid writing; and managing projects. This builds on our long-term passion for effective collaborative science and innovation.
