Our services

We will advise you in the field of Euro funds consult your projects ideas and guide you through all project phases starting with the formulation of the project’s aim and finishing with its realization. Generally, the project cycle has five phases. We would like to advise you in all of the phases collectively or separately.

Primary analysis

In the beginning of the cooperation with a client we firstly consult the aim of the project and find possibilities of its realization. After setting the specifics of the project’s aim we provide clients with a brief study of practicability derived from current subsidy schemes. Purpose of the primary analysis is to acquire an overall idea about means of realization of the project with the EU financial support. In continuity of the primary analysis we are additionally going to propose further steps for successful project realization.

 

Complex realization

As part of the comprehensive implementation of the project, we will be happy to help you with the entire application process, as well as with the actual implementation , monitoring and completion of the project, and provide a complete service. We will guide you through all project phases, ie. the whole life cycle of the project, which generally consists of the following five phases:

IDEA OF THE PROJECT

The idea of the project is a keystone for the whole process and principal precondition for applying for EU grants. Formulation of the idea must be explicit and comprehensive. Essenially, it contains answers to following questions:

  • WHAT am I going to do ?
  • FOR WHOM am I going to do it ?
  • HOW am I going to do it ?

Formulation of the main idea or objective of your project represents particularly important part. It influences all consecutive phases of the development of an accurate project and its potential for successful receipt of EU grants. Therefore, it is especially important to dedicate enough time in this phase for creation of due „output“ before procceding with next steps. The subject matter or content of the idea always comes from your side. Fortunately, we are here to help you to develop it and associate with specific EU programme or initiative.

SEARCH FOR AN APPROPRIATE EU INITIATIVE

Explicit and comprehensive idea formulation is followed by search for an appropriate programe and subsequntly selection of its currently ongoing initiative. In this phase, we will help you with the diagnosis of the project scope. We will compare project objective/s with objectives of chosen EU programme and initiative. We will take into account the opportunity to combine EU funding from different EU programmes at the same time.

After successful identification of suitable and matching initiative/s, we will find and summarize all available information related to the conditions for eligibility. Respectively, we will verify and validate the eligibility of the project applicant, project activity/ies as well as project expenses.

Thereafter, we will be ready to go ahead with the project creation itself.

CREATION OF THE PROJECT

Creation of the project represents the most extensive phase. Development of the project or an application for EU grant generally consists of following successive parts and processes :

  • Abstract of the project
  • Objective of the project
  • Definition of actual and desired condition
  • Form of an execution
  • IMPACT of the project
  • Budget of the project
  • Mandatory statements of state authorities

Optional (in some cases these are not required):

  • Definition of agreements among the partners/members of consortium
  • Patent/s
  • Mandatory or optional attachments
  • Mandatory or optional studies
  • Communicaton with executive offices and implementation agencies, or other contact points
  • Integrity check of the attachments and other documentation
  • Additional supply of any required document
  • Language of some of the projects/application for EU funding is English by obligation

Appropriate stylization and means of presentation of project data in relation to announcer of the initiative are particularly important attributes to recognize and keep in mind. The announcer of the initiative can be European Commission directly, or any Ministry of Slovak republic. Another essential attribute of successful project is its OVERALL COMPREHENSIVENESS. In order to be an eligible applicant for EU funding, it is important to create a coherent project, in which all its parts form logical relationship. Based on objectives, budget and impact of the project defined by yourselves, we are here to generate an application for EU funding with a considerable potential for drawing financial aid.

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROJECT

After receiving successful approval for your application and signing of your „grant agreememt“, another phase sets off. In the phase of project implementation we can offer you :

  • Consultancy and advisory services
  • External management and/or administrative services

The phase involves mainly observance of prescribed processes and time schedules in the extent defined in your project or application. In practise, this phase encompasses particular technical procedures, permissions, licences or approvals from competent authorities. As the non-returnable financial grant is being received from EU in parts, all of these activities constitute a relatively demanding administrative work. Public procurement/tender, intellectual property law agreement creations, patent applications – all of these are often mandatory in this phase. We closely cooperate with our partner lawyer’s office AK Hronček, team of which consists of specialists in this specific area.

TERMINATION OF THE PROJECT

The best comes at the end. The most important part of this phase is overall evaluation of the project! The whole process starting from first „raw“ idea, through successful approval of the application by EU authorities and final termination of project, is a long-term and difficult process. We are here to help you to thoroughly evaluate it. Complex evaluation is executed via following principal attributes:

  • Expected objectives versus achieved outputs
  • Planned budget versus real costs
  • Planned woking plan versus execution in practice
  • The implications of the execution of the project on organization’s functioning
  • The implications of mandatory period of project’s execution on organization’s functioning
  • Final evaluation of the whole effort spent and benefit/s obtained by the organization

Other activities exercised in this phase are mostly administrative in their nature. These comprise usually of final report of the project, final financial report of the project (final account), etc. All these documents must be submitted to executing authority of the initiative, and by doing so terminate funding for particular project.

Supporting the arts’ sector

Subsidy schemes and financial support from public subsidies are often the main financial sources for projects in the sector of Art. However, the main problem of these organizations when financing their projects through subsidy schemes is, that many requests for subsidies are written the last moment possible and thus they do not have required quality. This often results in decreasing motivation emerging from declined requests for subsidy. We are aware of the importance of this sector and that is why we help with financing their project aims.
