European Research and Project Office GmbH
Founded in 2000, the European Research and Project Office GmbH (EURICE) provides comprehensive support services for the planning, initiation, and implementation of international collaborative research and innovation projects. Today, EURICE ranks among Europe’s largest project management. In addition to offering backbone services for successful project management, EURICE is also managing impact and innovation in all areas of research and innovation projects. In order to pave the way for successful project exploitation, EURICE supports consortia in identifying, capturing, protecting and nurturing the Intellectual Property (IP) generated in research collaborations. 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.
Role within RELiEF
In RELiEF, EURICE leads the Work Package “Innovation Management: Communication, Dissemination, Exploitation”. Thus, EURICE will be involved in the synthesis of the results from the scientific Work Packages, and support innovation-related activities such as dissemination and exploitation of results to maximise the project impact. To the same end, EURICE will drive outreach and communication activities of the project. Furthermore, EURICE is strongly involved in project management and will support the coordinator in all aspects of project management, including administrative, legal and financial matters, project monitoring, progress management and decision making. Eurice will facilitate the project workflow in general, stimulate interaction between the different project management bodies, and, together with the coordinator, assume the role of a liaison between the project consortium and the EC.
