Do you sometimes think to yourself: geez, this is a lot of work?

The team members of Fit for Funding can remember only too well what happened
when we first applied for funding….
In the meantime, we've had almost 10 years of experience and so can support you with
all aspects of submitting a funding application to national and international agencies from
the development of the concept to dealing with the administrative side.
We are also working as evaluators in various EU framework programs.
