Service description

The Time Machine Project Scouting Service is a service offered exclusievely to Time Machine members. This Service enables members of the Time Machine network to have access to multi-partner European Union calls (e.g. EU Framework Programmes).

Our Project Scouting Team supports Time Machine members in the process of managing pre-proposal and proposal development stages. The Project Scouting Service furthermore ensures the implementation of a project participation scheme by the Time Machine Organisation (TMO) in project proposals. This participation in projects by TMO is coordinated by Time Machine members and targeted at EU calls for funding.

Time Machine members benefit from tailored services provided by the Project Scouting Team such as the identification of relevant calls for proposals, drafting of capable project consortia, the development of project proposals and the direct collaboration with the Time Machine Organisation in project proposals.

What are the benefits?

The Project Scouting Team is a one-stop-shop assistant for EU funding schemes. The Service provides a wide range of specialised services ranging from the initial identification of suitable calls to the final submission of proposals.

This way Time Machine members receive access to funding resources, internal and external research as well as innovation skills. Furthermore, the Service enables enhanced partnerships and collaborations for greater research and innovation achievements. Finally, the Project Scouting Service paves the way for uptake of research results generated by joint efforts of the Time Machine Organisation and its members.
