Want to make your projects successful? 

If you answered yes, let me be your partner! I support individuals and organisations in all phases of the preparation and management of external funding. I can turn your idea into an implementable plan, produce a winning proposal resulting in a financed project. I work in English and Finnish, and by mostly conducting remote consultancies, I can offer cost-effective solutions that bring a lot of value for you!

Funding strategy

Regardless, if you are a first-timer planning to access the EU funds or an experienced project organisation looking for new funding opportunities, I can help you to explore the available funding options for a one-time project by mapping the most relevant European programmes suitable for your needs or even establishing a complete external funding strategy for years ahead.

Grant writing

The old saying "well planned is half done" means everything in the world of projects. Let me help you to transform your idea to a top-quality project plan that serves a key management tool throughout the project's life cycle. I will draft winning project proposals, grant applications and/or tenders on behalf of you and coordinate the overall project design process.

Management support

For ongoing projects, I can offer expert support in arranging e.g. the project management practises based on international standards and frameworks, drawing up administrative or financial reporting in line with the donor requirements, or for example, in communication with the donors or stakeholders.

Quality assurance

Quality is central to every phase of the project cycle. If you have decided to lead the proposal preparation by yourself, let me increase your chances in the funding competition by doing the complete quality check and assessment of eligibility of your proposal as the grant evaluator would do. Designing quality plans and mechanisms for measuring results and assessing the impact is my passion, so I also do monitoring and evaluation consultancies for larger-scale projects and programmes.

Capacity building

Do you want to become successful in planning winning proposals or tenders and managing external funds own your own? I support both individuals and organisations in individual/organisational capacity building e.g. in the development of high-quality project applications and results-orientated management of approved projects. As a qualified teacher, I provide tailor-made training, designed for your individual needs and delivered on-line or on-site. 

Other

Writing is my passion, and I offer a number of other services, from qualitative research assignments (e.g. baseline reportsfeasibility studies and needs assessments) to wider communication and dissemination support. I can also help you in improving your website content being as appealing as possible to your stakeholders, or in the need of need a language check-up, I also do English-Finnish translations (taking the Authorised Translator's Exam in 2021).
