FFWD method

February 22 2017

ttopstart has developed the FFWD (Fit, Framework, Write and Development) model to fast forward your project from an innovative vision to a winning grant proposal.

Because of our risk-bearing strategy, we are highly motivated to succeed. We specialise in impact, for the consortium and for society.

Our FFWD model for a successful grant proposal

 

FFWD method for successful grant proposals

Fit

High-ranking projects show a perfect fit between proposal and call text. Both consortium and proposal must seamlessly match the call intentions and impact of the proposed research. To optimise this fit, we assists in:

  • Finding strong consortium partners - academic, industrial and other relevant stakeholders such as patient organisations.
  • Critically assessing and strengthening your initial project plan.

Framework

Uniting the visions of multiple partners into a synchronised and solid proposal is one of the main challenges for constructing a winning bid. We offer the tools to design a conceptual framework in which the consortium's plans can be integrated and fine-tuned towards a logical work plan. We use proven methods for problem analysis and presentation, including the Minto Pyramid Principle. This includes:

  • Analysis of the major problem – focal problem – sub challenges.
  • Definition of the ultimate goal – project objective – sub objectives.
  • Connection of work packages and impact to these items.

Write

ttopstart ensures a persuasive presentation of the proposal by applying the 8 C's: conform, complete, consistent, concise, concrete, convincing, coherent and creative.We guard timeliness and coordinates the entire application process - which can be as demanding.

Development

The commercialisation, impact, dissemination and exploitation parts of the proposal have become increasingly important in contemporary grant programmes. ttopstart offers project management services and commercialisation services to translate results into new products and services thereby increasing of your project.
