The need for expert competence that can contribute to the coming calls within Horizon 2020 is tremendous. At the same time, experts like researchers, rarely has experienced EU-project coordinators in their network. In order to build the perfect consortium, high-level match-making is needed.
Gothenburg has together with six European cities been granted 18 million Euros (just over 175 million Swedish Crowns) by the EU, for a five-year project. The application is rated number one by the EU commission.
– To have a good project idea isn’t enough if you want to receive a high score. You also need to have an excellent plan for the realisation of it and a clear picture of expected impact on society, says, Magnus Andersson, partner at IMCG and one of the key people in the creation of the winning application.
IMCG has entered a collaboration with the company Cleantech Inn, their members and international partners.
– Together we will develop a network organisation with a sharp business and growth focus. We aim to create new business opportunities for cleantech companies in the European market, says IMCG CEO Jonas Norrman.
A press release from Göteborg Energi states that a milestone has now been passed in the EU project CELSIUS. IMCG took part in writing the EU application, supports the project with communication services and long-term business development.
