Certifications of successful completion
Participants that attend our live events or the recorded ones (in that case upon some requirements) they will be receiving a certificate of successful completion from the training organisation Key Innovations Ltd/Funding Expert Academy.
An intelligent matchmaking platform based on AI
Since already OpenCosmos is used by hundreds of individuals, there is already a good critical mass for introducing match-making among the OpenCosmos community. Furthermore, in order to motivate the OpenCosmos members to use the AI matchmaking platform within OpenCosmos, we will be providing free consultancy support in any proposal/consortium that has involved minimum 3 organisations from OpenCosmos as partners.
Consultancy on the full proposal development cycle
In case any consortium has included min 3 OpenCosmos members in their proposal team, an OpenCosmos expert will support the development of the whole grant application (consultancy on the idea, call intelligence, proposal concept, consortium quality, proposal writing). There is no need for the coordinator to be member of OpenCosmos.
Monthly live Q&A sessions with an expert
Every month, we organise at fixed date and time, a live Q&A session via zoom that any individual from OpenCosmos can ask anything in real time or in advance (in case they cannot join live) and their questions will be answered by an expert during the live session. All sessions are recorded for future reference.
Monthly updates with all the open European funding opportunities
Every month, we publish all the European funding opportunities that are open for calls of proposals. More than 400 calls every month and OpenCosmos individuals have centrallised information in one place of all the available calls.
Share views with Top researchers and experts
Through the discussion forum in OpenCosmos anyone can share views, concerns, tips, best practices and collaboration opportunities with other TOP researchers and experts from the Open Cosmos community.
