We help you accelerate your R&D



Quest for excellence!

Marketkaps specializes in helping companies and research groups successfully apply for EU funding. Our team of Experts & Evaluators works closely with your organization to identify EU funding opportunities, develop a project, find partners and write a winning application.

Raising EU funding is an extremely competitive process as the EU selects only exceptional projects. While an outstanding project is an absolute must, the skills to sell your idea to the Evaluators and knowledge of the EU policy context are equally key.

We offer high-quality, customized project application and implementation services to help clients seize new EU funding opportunities and turn innovative ideas into funded projects. This ranges from EU public grants and private investments identification, consortium recruitment, bid writing, negotiation with the granting authorities, budgeting, quality control and implementation of projects.

We have a sound track record of more than 18 years in submitting EU funding applications on behalf of SMBs with project budgets ranging from thousands to several million euros.

The most typical services we include, among others:

  • Mapping of EU funding opportunities
  • Application writing, either in full or related to some specific work packages like project management, exploitation & dissemination or monitoring and evaluation;
  • Proofreading and assessment of eligibility of your proposal as the grant evaluator would do
  • Introduction to relevant consortia and partners’ recruitment for applications


After the funding of your project, we offer also services in project management and coordination of the project, assistance in the preparation of the deliverables and reports.
