Projects

Since 2005, we have developed and managed more than €66.6m million of European projects from many different funding streams. The Centre provides a complete project management service, starting with bid development and finding European partners through bid submission to all aspects of project management once the bid has been approved, including all reporting, financial management and audit.

Any relevant organisation from a health, social care or education background – whether statutory or voluntary – can become involved. Please get in touch to discuss how we can help you develop a successful project.
