• Schuman have guided us through the EU bidding process with great expertise and communicated very professionally with all participating partners. All stakeholders experienced the respect and competence to guide a partner network to a common goal. I was also impressed by the Schuman team's ability to tune in to an innovative topic and a complex partner structure, while at the same time ensuring the delivery of a quality proposal to a very tight deadline.

  • The ExPERT evaluation by Schuman Associates was very valuable to us. At Beaufort Research, University College Cork we have extensive experience in applying for EU grants but still find it a critical part of the process to get the feedback of qualified evaluators before proceeding with the finalisation of the application proposal.

  • We needed a partner who would work with us to spread the word about Agtel's creative video and digital services to European clients. The team at Schuman Associates has been very pro-active in helping us win work with a wide range of European institutions, agencies and associations.
