Turning a great idea into a successful result, whether that’s a new product or service or just accessing new markets can be fraught with problems as you explore the financing, knowledge and expertise required to accomplish it.
Using our extensive knowledge of public funding schemes, Beta can help you to take a strategic approach to sourcing appropriate public funds to support your organisation’s objectives.
Our support can range from identifying suitable funding, finding partners, constructing a strong proposal for specific projects through to supporting the development of business and exploitation plans.
Beta has accumulated over 20 years of experience and expertise on accessing research funding, most notably from the European Union (including the current funding programmes, Horizon 2020 and LIFE). Beta has provided a variety of support mechanisms to individual organisations, including universities, and to communities including seminars, websites, helplines and training workshops.
Our most successful approach has involved working alongside lead bidders and their partners to facilitate the process of applying for project funding, including providing guidance and support tools.
There is an increasing focus on defining and articulating research impacts during the application process and Beta has developed a number of bespoke tools to support this including a training course on research impacts, with a particular emphasis on the EU’s Horizon 2020 Programme. The course can be tailored to suit your requirements and is based on our own successful track record of accessing EU funding and our experience as a former National Contact Point.
