Furthermore, participating in a European project offers a certain number of other opportunities, whatever your status (small, medium or large company, university, research centre, public authority…). The list below provides a non-exhaustive overview :
You will head the project and have important decision-making and managerial powers. The investment is appreciable but has enormous benefits in terms of contacts, opportunities and the raising of your profile.
The investment in the writing of the proposal can be focused solely on your technology and your expectations of development. Equally, your investment in the management of administrative and financial matters during the project will be kept to a strict minimum. You will therefore be able to concentrate on your cutting-edge technology.
One project (whether financed or not) leads to another. Working on a project gives you visibility. Consortia seeking for skills and competences will then be able to find you more easily in the future.
