Singleimage is the leading international provider of practical training for the European Union’s Research Framework Programme (FP7 and Horizon 2020), and is based in the UK.
The workshops are aimed at researchers and administrators, project managers and contracts officers who have to deal with the practicalities of EU research, not the politics. Our customers have research interests ranging from agronomy to zero energy building, from nanotechnology to macro-economics. They are universities and institutes, multi-national companies and start-ups, and agencies who promote participation in EU research. They come from every European country, so you can learn in an international environment. And since 2002 we have trained over 5570 of them!
The workshops are held almost every month in Cambridge, and intermittently in Brussels, as well as by invitation at many other locations across Europe. You can choose an event from the schedule, or contact us to arrange a workshop at your location. All our workshops are given in English.
Once you have attended one of our workshops we do not abandon you! We provide an after-care service. So, for example, if you can't quite remember how an EC ruling applies to your project, send us an email. You will also receive a copy of our In-Touch with FP7 monthly publication.
Our workshop presenter, Paul Drath, has 23 years experience in EU research, as an expert evaluator and reviewer, and participant in more than fifteen projects, including three as coordinator. He has been supporting proposers to the Framework Programme with training and advice since 1996.
Paul has lectured on EU research to audiences from every EU Member State and Associated country, from Russia, Belarus and the Ukraine. He is frequently invited to speak at events relating to EU research funding organised by FP7 National Contact Points, associations and foundations, as well as individual universities and institutes.

The Ideal-ist consortium has over 65,000 contacts interested in the ICT Programme.
