Specialized in European R&D and Innovation funding programs

Since 2011, ARISTOS offers consulting services to clients throughout Europe from its headquarters in Barcelona. Since then we have managed to raise more than 140 million euros for more than 85 projects in the framework programs: FP7, Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe.

Our team includes experts in different sectors: renewable energy, health, agri-food, transport, environment, ICT and industrial, among others.

Our keys to success:

  • Detailed analysis of the projects: We make sure that the project fits the instrument and its conditioning factors.
  • Proven experience in R & D & Innovation programs: We have been preparing proposals for more than 10 years, which gives us a first-hand view of what evaluators are looking for in projects.
  • Personalized dedication: We like to have a close relationship with clients and get involved in the preparation of proposals, providing excellence in every part of the process.

Our added value is based on our extensive knowledge of the official and “unwritten” rules of the different instruments.
