Different from the role M2i plays in national programs, in which we develop and acquire funding for research proposals for our customers (industrial partners), when seeking success in the EU arena M2i is an equal partner. In this role our main value is to accommodate the diverse academic and industrial interests in a framework that will prove successful among tough competition. M2i has a long track record of research activities in the materials arena, with insights in both the scientific content and industrial needs, which translates into high quality proposals. Great effort is required to set up a successful European proposal, and therefore the strategy of M2i in coordinating EU projects is a high level of selectivity (strong scientific concept, best-in-class research partners) and a timely start to preparations, usually one year in advance of the Call closure.

If you are interested in discussing possibilities for cooperation in European consortia for Horizon 2020 (especially NMPB and FoF), INTERREG, RFCS or other instruments – please contact Iulia Degeratu: i.degeratu@m2i.nl.
