Writing the project proposal

The role of projects for different organizations, representing research or industry sectors, grows systematically. It is the response to the increasing dynamics of the environment, a technical progress, and a requirement for seeking external funding sources, ensuring the stability of development.

Obtaining funds for research activities (often up to 100%) means the application for projects by submitting project proposals to the calls announced by different financing institutions (at national and international level). 

The preparation of a project proposal is a process that should be understood as a ‘small project’, which requires profound organizational steps in order to be effective. Depending on the Program, under which the project proposal is going to be submitted, this process requires more or less complex processes/areas of expertise. Furthermore, it always requires time and allocation of resources (people, budget). 

While making decisions regarding the preparation of project proposal, there is a need to find the answers to the following questions:

  • Does our team have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the program under which the submission of project proposal is planned?
  • Do we have suitable contacts to find right partners for our consortium?
  • Do we have enough time to prepare the proposal?
  • How should the roles within our team be assigned during the process of preparing the proposal?

At Amber Project, we believe that the process of preparing the project proposal is always inextricably linked to the collaboration with our clients, who are the experts in their area of expertise. Thanks to our experience, we are thoroughly prepared to support our clients in the final elaboration of the project concept, in elaborating plan of the project action, in describing procedures for project management, in defining the budget, as well as in developing a plan for dissemination and exploitation of results. 

While supporting our clients in the process of proposal preparation we pay special attention to the confidentiality of information and mutual respect of intellectual property rights.
