DrEAMS Funding Consultancy

DrEAMS Funding Consultancy offers a wide range of research funding support services. With a 20 year track record of providing research funding support in the life sciences and health domain, our broad experience covers Dutch, European and international funding schemes. As such, we can advise and support on many funding programmes, amongst others Horizon Europe including the Cancer mission, Innovative Health Initiative, COST, NWO, Nationale Wetenschapsagenda, Topsectoren, KWF and NIH. Our niche is in the European Framework Programmes for research and innovation, in which we have been active since the start of FP6 in 2002.

We believe in a personalised approach. This means that we will first discuss with you in person the exact needs for our research funding support services and together with you agree on our way of collaboration.
