Grants Europe Consulting Ltd was founded by Hen Gerritse and Eszter Kostenszky in 2008 to respond to the increasing need for specialised consultancies able to provide premium services in accessing EU funding programmes. Eszter Héjj joined the executive staff by acquiring a share in the company in 2015, and now the three of them are working closely together in managing a strong team of over 25 staff members and experts. By now, Grants Europe has become a values-driven business and we pride ourselves on our great people, senior consultants with several years of experience in EU affairs and our team of bright young professionals. We speak overall nearly 10 languages: English, Dutch, Hungarian, French, German, Spanish, Serbian, Croatian and Italian, and have experience in working with all types of clients from different parts of Europe. Our consultants and experts have a background in Economics, Regional Policy, Law, Social Studies, International Relations, and Geography.
We are specialised in bridging regional and European policies and associated funding programmes by connecting clients’ needs to funding opportunities. Our business covers the whole project cycle linked to EU funding, from the initial project idea to the submission of applications, project start-up and implementation. Working for both the public and private sector, the company achieved a solid track record with an average of 80% success rate by now in territorial cooperation type of projects that make up the core of our project portfolio. At EU Programme level, some of our senior consultants have also been involved in the development of ERDF Programmes for both the current and the previous funding period, and are certified programme experts, e.g. in the URBACT Programme.
