European Research and Project Office GmbH
Founded in 2000, the European Research and Project Office GmbH (EURICE) provides comprehensive support services for the planning, initiation, and implementation of international collaborative research and innovation projects. Today, EURICE is among Germany’s largest project management offices and, according to the most recent H2020 monitoring report, ranks among the Top 3 SMEs in Europe regarding the number of signed H2020 agreements.
Consortium partners benefit from EURICE’s extensive expertise gathered from over 100 project co-ordinations in EU Funding Programmes and take advantage of the company’s sophisticated Project Management Office infrastructure. They offer backbone services for a successful project management approach by providing fair, transparent and neutral decision support information. EURICE is also specialised in managing impact and innovation in all areas of research and innovation projects. In order to pave the way for successful project exploitation, they support consortia in identifying, capturing, protecting and nurturing the Intellectual Property (IP) generated in research collaborations. Thus, EURICE accompanies researchers and innovative companies through the entire life cycle of a project – from the first idea to successful project completion – and beyond.
In APAL, EURICE supports the coordinator in the every-day management of the project. In addition, in WP6, EURICE will ensure the synthesis of the results from work packages 1-5, and support innovation-related activities such as dissemination and exploitation of results. As leader of Tasks 6.1, 6.2 and 6.4, EURICE will ensure strategic and systematic management of communication and dissemination measures to maximise project impact, and facilitate the sustainable use and uptake of results.
