HOW WE WORK
From the beginning of our business life, we consider our clients as our partners. Mutual trust and cooperation is the basis of our partnership with our clients.
Different from the common perception of R&I consultancy, we first position ourselves as “facilitator of partnership communication” for the partners in our domestic and EU networks.
In our national network we have:
- SMEs and large companies from several sectors*, who are interested in participating in H2020 projects (including PPPs and P2Ps) with their “Expression of Interest”, indicating their priorities and possible contributions regarding specific call topics.
- Researchers from universities and RTOs, with whom we trigger an industry-academia joint collaboration for the Turkish side before their participation in a suitable H2020 consortium.
- Technology Transfer Offices, through which we access researchers, start-ups, spin-offs, and technology/research companies in incubators and technoparks of universities as well as from which we take support in IPR issues.
- Chambers of Commerce, which provides us with an effective means of promotion and dissemination of H2020 related issues as well as the accession of innovative companies in their network.
In our EU network, we have several distinguished universities, RTOs, SMEs and big companies all across Europe, which we had contacted/collaborated throughout the years of our service.
Our partners deal with their daily routine, we keep eye on Horizon 2020 calls (including PPPs (JUs) and P2Ps (ERA.NETs)) and partner search activities on behalf of them. Thus, we provide service to our national clients (profit organisations) in their participation in successful projects by contacting/negotiating the groups in search for appropriate partners. We also match our national clients upon partner search requests we receive from the partners in our EU network. Finally, we initiate proposals if our national clients have their own concrete project idea suitable for the EU domain.
The advantage of working with us for our national for-profit clients is that we serve as “one-stop solution provider” in H2020 projects in networking and consortia building, proposal management, and project management.
The motivation of our EU partners for participating in our network is that instead of searching for potential partners one by one via different means and platforms, our network serves as “a single gateway” for partner search which helps them to easily access the partners meeting their project/consortium criteria for free.
