The Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications (DECC) are the Irish National Contact Point for the EU Innovation Fund. In this capacity they are excited to offer a unique opportunity of one-to-one consultation sessions with Deloitte for projects at an Advanced Stage who are considering an application in either the 2024 or 2025 call.
The one-to-one consultations sessions offer a valuable opportunity to receive personalised guidance on project proposals.
To be considered for these sessions, DECC request potential applicants to provide:
- Project Overview: Briefly describe your project, highlighting key objectives, innovations, and expected outcomes.
- Current Stage: Specify the current stage of your project. This could include research, development, testing, or any other relevant phase.
- Challenges: Identify any challenges or specific areas where you seek guidance or support.
- Team and Partners: Provide information about your project team and any existing or potential collaboration partners.
Please submit this overview document to email@example.com by 5pm Tuesday 23 January.
Please Note – Projects that demonstrate significant potential and align with the EU Innovation Fund’s objectives will be selected for the one-to-one consultation sessions.
Selected projects will be notified by Friday 26 January and will have the opportunity to schedule a dedicated session with Deloitte.
This initiative is designed to enhance the quality of your project proposal and provide tailored insights to strengthen your application to the EU Innovation Fund.
