European Research and Project Office GmbH (Eurice)
Founded in 2000, Eurice - European Research and Project Office GmbH provides comprehensive support services for the planning, initiation, and implementation of large international collaborative projects. Eurice has been involved in EU-Framework Programmes since FP4 and has been supporting researchers in more than 250 EU funded projects to date. Today, Eurice is among Germany’s largest project management offices, with a dedicated team of 40 staff members with different professional and scientific expertise, such as law, medicine, biology, chemistry, communications, information sciences, or computer sciences.
In addition to classical project management, Eurice helps to develop and implement coherent IP strategies and supports consortia through dissemination, networking, training, and capacity building activities. Thus, Eurice accompanies researchers and innovative companies through the entire life cycle of a project – from the first idea to successful project completion – and beyond.
Apart from project specific activities, Eurice regularly provides training in the field of project, research and innovation management on national & international level (e.g. with the NCPs for LifeSciences and for Legal and Financial Issues, and in a large number of ICPC countries).
Furthermore, Eurice is part of the European IPR Helpdesk, an initiative of the Directorate General for Enterprise and Industry at the European Commission, offering free-of-charge, first-line support on IP and IPR matters to beneficiaries of EU funded research projects and EU SMEs involved in transnational partnership agreements.
Eurice is a key partner in the initiative Fit for Health 2.0 which aims at promoting and enhancing a sustainable participation of European industry in the health-related sector of Horizon 2020.
Eurice is a full partner within the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) being a “one-stop-shop” for the business needs of SMEs in the EU and beyond, which brings together more than 600 business support organisations from across 60 countries, including chambers of commerce, technology centres or development agencies.
