What exactly is this Innovation and Knowledge Community?
„ There is a single light of science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.”
Private subscribers become part of our community, which can help them with peer and expert support, resources, opportunities that represent a unique value on the market. Members of the community will have free access to our information and training packages, thematic, clean-cut information about calls for proposals – sometimes before it is finalized. As true as boring, but still: time is money. Through the Community’s internal channels, important information on calls for proposals and other funding opportunities are being shared, as well as key legal and other regulatory changes. Being social? We too! Let’s keep in touch via our social media group.
For all members, we offer our best possible support, be it training, consulting, proposal writing, bidding, sales advice, or just conducting a conversation via teleconference. We place great emphasis on due diligence, the fact that all our members become nearer to their desired goal is our only priority. Supporting sustainability, we encourage sustainabile efforts and activities within the community.
- To give the right answers to the widest possible audience in the shortest timeframe – at a reasonable price.
- Short and comprehensive videos, summaries, templates – new content every month
- Your questions – in Your time – according to Your budget.
Regularly uploaded e-learning materials to the constantly updated internal interface – members of the Innovation Community can stay in touch through our closed social media groups. Educational and informative materials are constantly posted about the most popular topics: research, innovation, technology transfer, project management , business development, proposal writing, data protection, academic and business English and other skills development – members can suggest which topic to cover next month.
Trainings are available in forms of webinars, interviews, presentations and workshops, where there is an opportunity for individual learning and self-improvement. All you have to do is log in and browse through the materials available in both English and Hungarian, but we can also provide a personalized training plan tailored to your individual needs and abilities if required. There may also be special occasions when we provide individual training or coaching in connection with a specific topic or activity, such as the sales pitch – or winning potential investors – or the final report of a project.
Once we both know exactly what you need, it’s easier and cheaper to arrange a targeted consultation hour – we care about your time and your budget as well!
If this does not seem to fit your needs, you want to get answers to your questions and you do not have time to browse through the materials because the answer is urgent, then choose Consulting!

Startup investments, including the “pre-seed”, “seed”, “Series A”, “Series B”, and “Scale-up” phases, responsible venture capital fund, socially responsible investment, “Green Funds” are some of the options to choose from. Our primary task is to open the gates and create opportunities for making your pitch, but we can also support you at the negotiation phase if you wish us to do so.

Using our experience in space technology transfer projects, we believe that technologies should not remain on researchers’ drawing boards or in their lab cabinets, but that their realization should change our world in a responsible and sustainable direction. By supporting these processes with technology mapping and evaluation, we can help you prepare case studies and exploit potential opportunities in both product development and licensing.
We offer to write proposals for companies or international consortia on the basis of a given call for proposal. This service is recommended to larger enterprises or strong SMEs, with the necessary capacity and ability to implement more complex projects.
The professional content must be provided by the customer, if professional content is also required, it is also possible to order it as a separate service. The right to use the proposal materials belong to the customer. Resubmission to another call within the same program is available at 50% discount if we also developed the original material.
Usually, the hard part starts when you already have the “seed” funding and a project starts. Technical and organizational challenges, finding and engaging end-users, risk management, resource optimization, dissemination, intellectual property protection, data protection, regulatory frameworks, project management – contracts, procurements, technical and financial reporting – are the most common, but not all, of challenges to be met . We want you to be free to focus on your idea, and entrust other problems to us, to avoid the proverbial case:
Full project support is offered for you by carrying out the tasks requested within the project (this can also mean full project management). Together, we can increase flexibility and the chances of a successful outcome. An important rule: the intellectual property rights are yours – and yours only.
When a product is ready to be launched on the market, or if we want to enter a new market with an existing product, it is worth taking all the help and opportunities available.
To this end, we offer you our sales support, which includes setting up a joint list of leads with you, market and customer research, coordinated promotion, and increasing product sales. Since starting a new, innovative product is hard enough by itself, we also want to make things easier for you by providing us with this product only for a success fee.
Navigating the RDI market as an investor is certainly not a small task. Plenty of promising but high-risk new products, not to mention that startups need ongoing support even after the investment is made..
This product is explicitly designed for investors, which may include the search for and identification of promising companies and products, the preparation or conduct of investment negotiations, and the representation of investors in startup programs.
For those organizations wanting to build Horizon Europe participation capacity, this will be suitable from our products. As each company / institution is different, we create a unique plan in each case to achieve the result envisaged by our client. Therefore, together with our customer, we determine the exact content of capacity building, then determine the price and lay everything down neatly in a contract.
Let’s see an example:
- assessing the client’s international and direct EU R&D project capacity,
- building an innovative, ‘Horizon Europe – proof’ team,
- renew the necessary processes, review the company’s internal regulations and coordinate them with the requirements arising from participation,
- providing 30 hours of training for the designated staff.
If required, we can also provide you with a personalized training plan based on individual needs and abilities.
