In Brussels since 1991: a legacy of excellence

Together with clients, we develop a strategic approach towards EU funding opportunities. We accompany clients in the definition of project ideas, identification of funding programmes and development of project consortia. Clients also rely on IDP’s services for the management and reporting of the project throughout its lifetime.

IDP European Consultants assists private, public and third sector organisations, as well as Universities and Research Centers, with the following services:

Mapping and identification of EU opportunities

Tailored and in-depth monitoring of EU programmes, grant opportunities and tenders. Analysis of project ideas and matching with the most relevant opportunities in the frame of EU programmes. The daily and tailored monitoring of EU opportunities allows IDP European Consultants to timely alert clients on specific opportunities across the most relevant programmes and tenders

Project management

IDP European Consultants provides operational and technical support in the management of large and complex projects to ensure smooth implementation and full compliance with monitoring and reporting requirements

IDP European Consultants developed a robust expertise in most European funding programmes, with specific competences in Horizon Europe, Single Market Programme, Life and Erasmus+ thanks to multiple years of experience in supporting companies’ competitiveness, internationalisation and R&I since the 4th Framework Programme.

Such direct experience complements the expertise in proposal drafting with the direct knowledge of the evaluation process and mechanisms.
