[su_spoiler title=”Funding Source Scouting” style=”fancy”] The EU provides funding and grants for a broad range of projects and programmes covering areas such as education, health and consumer protection. Funding is managed according to strict rules to ensure that there is tight control over how funds are used and that funds are spent in a transparent, accountable manner. EU funding is complex, since there are many different types of programmes managed by different bodies. Over 76% of the EU budget is managed by the member countries. This includes the structural funds – which finance regional policy, social and training programmes, as well as agriculture (including support for farmers).
[su_spoiler title=”Project Plan Design” style=”fancy”]Planning a good project is vital in order to ensure a professional structure during all stages of the work involved. Perhaps, project planning is often undervalued – but time and time again, contracts awarded on the basis of a good methodology, a coherent structure and impeccable wording. These are certainly vital traits when dealing with EU grants and other projects. In this connection, KIC is well versed in the creation and setting up of detailed work-plans – aimed at achieving the desired project outputs (in line with European Commission recommendations and best practices).
[su_spoiler title=”Partner Search” style=”fancy”]Partner searching is undertaken meticulously in order to identify appropriate partners for EU-funded multilateral projects. KIC wants clients to increase their success rates in grants application. Therefore, whether a prospective client is an NGO, a Local Authority, University or SME in Europe, Asia, Africa or USA, KIC strives to provide all the tools needed for designing and managing successful proposals while respecting the client’s targets.

KIC can also assist clients in promoting the project at information days/seminars based of course on their needs and objectives. Since KIC offers a variety of experience in different projects, the company can help prospective clients search for partners via the Company database so that clients can also start building up a good contact list.

[su_spoiler title=”Bid Writing” style=”fancy”]Imagine getting your bid letter written by a person who has never written a bid before or better a person who knows what the contract is about but isn’t able to put it into words. A Bid letter written in such a manner lacks the power to attract and keep the client hooked to the letter. On the other hand, a professional Bid writing service, provided by experts in the field, can help you and your organisation to save time and money which would have otherwise been wasted and, ultimately, better spent doing what you are best at. Bid writing is KIC’s trump card. The company is well versed in preparing professional project methodologies, outputs, budget plans and compiling administrative information.
