Early in 2018, Innovayt assisted the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) from the Netherlands with the preparation of a successful proposal for the Marie Curie Initial Training Networks programme. The proposal received an outstanding evaluation, achieving a score of 99.4% and reaching the first place in the Life Sciences panel. PoLiMeR consortium (Polymers in the Liver: Metabolism and Regulation) aims to set a landmark in the present European Higher Education Area as the first research training initiative in personalised ‘Systems Medicine’. PoLiMeR’s mission is to train 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs) to become the first breed of dedicated Systems-Medicine experts with a unique and wide-reaching competence profile, including technical, interpersonal and day-to-day skills, who can work and collaborate along the continuous spectrum between computational and wet-lab environments, and across academic, clinical and industrial environments.
Commenting on Innovayt’s performance, Prof. Barbara Bakker from the UMCG highlights: “The experts from Innovayt helped us enormously to improve the PoLiMeR proposal. They not only took a lot of work from my shoulders as a coordinator, but also had a very creative way of making informative tables and illustrations. What is more, their critical feedback on the scientific parts of the proposal helped us phrase our ideas clearly and convincingly. I recommend Innovayt to all my colleagues who plan to write large grant proposals".
