Acquiring funding, internal or external, is the basis of any scientific project. Writing good research proposals and protocols is required. That is not easy, whether it involves relatively small and simple projects, such as a clinical trial within a hospital, or an international and multidisciplinary application for EU funding. DRS supports scientists at maximum to translate their research ideas into strong research proposals and protocols.
GREAT IN FUNDING
the basis of any scientific project
the conduit between conductor and orchestra
The role of a research manager in preparing a proposal is similar to the one of a concertmaster of an orchestra. She, or he, is leading the orchestra at some moments, being even a soloist, but the conductor remains the overall leader.
The concertmaster is sitting next to the conductor to take over duties whenever required. Similarly, a research manager should collaborate very closely with a scientist to provide any help needed.
We build a research team, a consortium, based on either suggestions of the principal investigator, or we do an own search for suitable team members. We always check the quality and availability of selected candidates ourselves. We organise meetings, set-up the budget, provide methodological support, prepare submissions to an Ethics Committee, and so on, to arrive at a high ranking proposal.
DRIEHOEK RESEARCH SUPPORT
building the team
We are convinced that the success rate of a proposal is already at 50% just by employing professional research management.
DRS served scientists to develop research proposals at the level of the own institution, the Dutch national level, and the European level. At the European level, we have experience in grant applications under Horizon 2020, INTERREG, and C-IPM.
Besides preparing complete proposals, we may provide a review of a completed proposal solely. If you need a review in short, we guarantee a review within two weeks for a fixed price of € 500 ex VAT. You do not need to deal, fill out forms, or what else. Just a call to DRS and payment of an invoice, after the job has been finished.
