TU/e project management Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie project Photo4Future
The international Photo4Future trainings network is coordinated by the Eindhoven University of Technology and focuses on photochemistry. Photochemistry involves the use of visible light to induce chemical transformations.
In the coming years, ten doctoral students will develop new photochemical applications through multidisciplinary research to provide energy efficient and green alternatives to the chemical industry. For the realization of this program, the Eindhoven University of Technology received funding from the European Marie Sklodowska-Curie subsidy program.
Successfully obtaining this Marie Sklodowska-Curie project requires already the necessary knowledge and experience in Horizon 2020 funding. Nevertheless, at least as much expertise is needed to manage such a project. As after the project is awarded it should be implemented under the terms of the ‘grant agreement’. Therefore, in order to be able to focus on the project’s primary activities, the Eindhoven University of Technology is outsourcing the project management to Hezelburcht.
With the knowledge and expertise of European regulations Hezelburcht supports the consortium with, among others, the general communication, legal and financial matters and managing reports.
Working with Hezelburcht allows the researchers to focus on the real work, namely the research. This means that we can work more efficient and results-oriented. As coordinator, I am therefore extremely pleased with the smooth collaboration with Hezelburcht! - Dr. Timothy Noël, Eindhoven University of Technology
