  5. Development of individual project objectives and targets
  6. Preparation of project results and necessary main activities
  7. Preparation of a structured summary of the project idea on approx. 2 pages per idea

 

Preparation of a comprehensive project application for the corresponding EU program/call

Palemid offers the preparation of a complete project application to a suitable EU funding program and calls for relevant topics in close cooperation with the project office of a company.
The proposal, based on the state of the art and following high quality criteria, consists of the following main components:

  • Technical sections including Project Goals, justification, results, work plan, methodology of implementation, etc.
  • Financial sections including the project budget
  • Consortium/partnership
  • Administrative documents and formal components

The detailed structure and content depends on the specific program chosen for the application.
In setting up the partnership for the project and the key strategic directions of the project (objectives, main activities and results, budget, etc.), there will be close cooperation between Palemid and the Company Project Office and feedback will be integrated. The active involvement of the client in these areas is essential to ensure high quality output in line with the client’s organizational objectives. In addition, auxiliary activities are included in this offer:

  • Joint selection of the call on the basis of proposals from Palemid
  • Regular updates and communication with the customer
  • Feedback meetings during the entire start-up phase.
  • Concluding session after the preparation of the proposal to safeguard the lessons of the past

Methodology

On the basis of the following approximate work plan, the activities to prepare the project proposal will be carried out. However, the exact timeframe depends on the specific request chosen and possible adjustments according to customer requirements. Updates of the schedule will be provided upon request by the customer in case of changes.
Constant communication between the client and the service provider by e-mail and personal meetings ensure that the offer is adapted to the client’s organizational development objectives. In addition, the integral feedback and approval loops implemented in the above work plan ensure a step-by-step progress control by the customer.

A dual control principle is applied in the definition of content, financial calculation and completion of the respective administrative departments, whereby checklists and required annexes to the respective project application form are run through to ensure maximum quality standards.

Senior Consultants will be involved in the preparation of the technical sections as well as the budget of the application and will bring several years of experience in applying for EU funding as well as in the management of large international projects.

International market entry strategies
A key step in developing a global expansion strategy is the selection of potential target markets. Businesses adopt different approaches to select target markets. The consultancy covers a four-step process that the company can use to begin the process of screening potential markets. The choice of entry mode will be influenced by several decision criteria. There are two types of decision criteria that can be roughly distinguished: internal criteria (company-specific) and external criteria (environment-specific).

There are three main groups of ways of entering foreign markets: export, contract and investment, which differ in terms of the degree of control, risk and flexibility. Decisions to enter the international market also cover the question of the time of entry: when should a company enter a foreign market? Exiting the market is a decision that must be made carefully. Just as there are barriers to entry, there are barriers to exit that can delay or make it difficult to decide to exit.
