SERVICES to the International research community

We do not consider success as a matter of luck. Especially commitment, experience and know-how have been important to reach our goals. In the area of research funding there is a lot to read - we do recommend that. But of particular value, however, are the unwritten rules that become clear only after years of cooperation and exchange. It is this invaluable experience that we utilise for our clients: from the idea to the project.

 

The knowledge and services of EUREL are an essential part of an ecosystem that accelerates the research and innovation process and continuously incorporate cutting edge knowledge by supporting the next generation of better organised scientists.

The acquisition of funding is of great importance early in the innovation cycle in academia, as well as in the advanced company stage for new product, process and service innovation.

 

The existing EUREL networks simplify internationalisation of university institutes and businesses, independently of national gatekeepers.

WHAT SCIENTISTS SAY: "Just Horizon 2020 is not enough! I learned about the strategy behind national, international and global funding. I learned about industry cooperation and private funds. The much deeper understanding is highly motivating. I will diversify my funding protfolio and will also look into US and funding from China." "I would like to mention that EUrelations trainers have amazing people skills. They came across as very likeable, approachable and I felt that this wasn't just a job to them but that they truly cared about us as individuals. Such people are absolutely golden. They encouraged each and every one of us and told us over and over again to go go go for it and never ever give up. Personally, it was exactly the kind of encouragement I needed to overcome my self-doubt and fears of failure and to dare and pursue what I like doing: Science." "We learned step-by-step how to submit a proposal, how to attract the attention of the evaluators. I feel more confident to communicate my scientific work and will submit several fellowship application in the next months. These courses are different from what I experienced before at my university. A real game changer!"




· Career Coaching for young researchers


Professional competence and scientific excellence form the basis for a successful career - be it in the academy or in the private sector.
In addition to specialist knowledge, however, young researchers also need so-called complementary skills. Specific knowledge in the areas of applying for external funding, project and time management as well as self-marketing (presentation techniques & poster design) to give the doctoral students an important competitive advantage.
EUrelations AG has been dedicated to the careers of young scientists for several years. Within the university's own graduate schools and within the framework of Marie Curie projects of the European Commission, we organise and implement a wide range of courses in the interdisciplinary field. We make sure that your doctoral students are fit for the challenges of the working world.
We offer a wide range of courses - from generating ideas, rerouting proposals, to organizing projects - our courses are individually tailored to the needs of your doctoral students as well as to those of your organization. We also pay special attention to linking the Academy to industry. Your doctoral students should learn to make the right contacts and thus enter into important research collaborations.
Professional, pragmatic and personal!

· Effective Stress Management for StartUp/SME


You are feeling stressed and overburdened? The load of your daily work is too much? EUrelations AG offers the ideal solution with the training “Effective Stress Management”. Scientists do not only solve complex problems, but also are increasingly challenged by the demands of the modern, highly competitive, global, mobile and stressful scientific world. This training helps participants to cope with the stress inherent to academia more effectively. An understanding of stress and relaxation response mechanisms will be gained, experiments with a series of time-tested stress management techniques performed, so that at the end of the training each scientist will have his or her own stress management program. Contact us for possible dates and more information about the training.
