01Guides & Reports
What is a Brussels Office?
As more and more decisions are taken in Brussels, more and more entities, from farmers to cyclists, industry groups to pharma, regions, cities, universities and any other forms of syndicalisation, want to have a strong voice. An office in Brussels allows you to collect precious information, to participate and to be consulted regarding EU policies and, last but not least, enables you to participate in brokerage events so you could find the perfect partners for your future EU funded projects.
What is a project brokerage?
A project brokerage event is usually an event where regions, cities, companies or any other entities are showcasing a call for funds, or a particular problem that they want to solve in the future. Of course, the purpose is to find the right people or institutions to partner in order to apply and win an European grant.
Is the ADR Nord-Est Brussels Team writing project proposals?
In general no. We do not want to be a competitor for our consultancy partners. Still, in very special circumstances, we might help you out with some other tasks, for instance helping you out with the concept, or we can give you policy tips, we can review your application, we can even help you with the reasoning and articulation when it comes to the connection with the framework program or other EU priorities. In short, it means we do not take responsibility for your application, but if it’s your first time, we would be happy to assist you. If you are a real beginner, we recommend you to start with the EURADA Summer School and with attending the EURADA project brokerage, just to get a glimpse of it.
How can you assist me in my daily business?
There are many ways to assist you, we can recommend you fairs where you could find new clients, we can build for you a micro-strategy in order to internationalize your business in a few simple steps. First, get in contact with us!
What is the added value of a network?
A network is important because you get to know a lot of people, and they get to know you. By knowing each other you create trust. Trust is strategically important because it decreases the cost of communication. So, if I trust you, I will share my project idea with you, my budget, my plans, my goals, my business plan. This way a project can be built up smoothly. Without trust, it’s impossible to work with other partners and cooperation is useless. Becoming a member of a network (sectorial, project based, lobby) is crucial on the long term.
What kind of lobby are you doing?
We have our say on very specific topics that have an impact on us, like Horizon Europe calls, or ERDF rules. Simple geographical quotas, or the way you define an SME, or eligibility rules, can have an incredible impact on the outcome of a call for projects. When we lobby, we do it so that the conditions and the terms are not excluding the businesses, the universities, the local government from our region.
