Manuscript Support

Writing papers is the cornerstone of productive research, but it can be difficult to stay motivated and not get lost in the details, especially at the end of long projects. As experienced publishing scientists, we have lived through these challenges. We also know that scientific writing is a lot more about science than about writing, so our approach is to adopt the role of reviewer, editor, and reader to offer you an impartial scientist’s perspective. We work with you on clarifying your scientific story, connecting your ideas so that they resonate with the reader, and perfecting the flow and style of the language to help take your article to submission-ready.

Since 2013, we have helped publish hundreds of scientific articles, and are actively working with universities, public research institutes, agencies and foundations, EU research networks, and private companies. Please check out our Review Process and Submission Checklist and get in touch to discuss your next manuscript.

Training for
Research Scientists

Training in transferrable and complementary skills is fast becoming recognised as key for scientists’ professional development, and there is a clear demand for their institutes to provide this training. To meet this demand we deliver workshops, training programs, and deliverable-focused actions to help scientists deal with the main challenges they face, both scientific and non-scientific. We use innovative training techniques and proven didactic concepts to train scientists in a range of key topics, including scientific communication, management, and working in teams.

We have delivered training sessions, workshops and retreats to hundreds of PhD students, PostDocs and senior scientists at more than a dozen research centres, and are now running long-term training programs on diverse topics at several of these centres.

Grant Writing Support

Applicants for scientific grants calls can be challenged to identify new and unpredictable scientific and technological discoveries. We boost your research plan with consultancy services. Our experts will provide tailored individual support to meet the high expectations of numerous grant calls. Our team has supported dozens of scientists in applying for calls such as ERC-AdV, StG, and CoG, La Caixa Junior Leaders, MSCA IFs and ITNs, various SWaFS and a couple of Societal Challenges calls, as well as applications to the COST Actions and the latest Severo Ochoa institutional call.

By focusing our training and mentoring actions on concrete scientific deliverables, we not only support the researchers’ work, but also ensure that their ideas are communicated appropriately for the call’s demands.
