What we can do for you

This platform facilitates the exchange of information between the parties involved in collaborative projects.

It tackles three core aspects:

  • Finding relevant partners (ideation phase)
  • Getting the funders’ perspective on whether your project aligns with the call topic and on the eligibility of the partners involved (project definition phase);
  • Building one single technical document that all partners agree on, which can be used to request public funding in Luxembourg (project preparation phase).
