Completed Project Examples
Here we present selected completed project examples were Ingemar Pongratz and / or Pongratz Consulting were highly active in all the different project phases, including proposal planning, design, preparation, management and reporting.
In total Pongratz Consulting has successfully applied for over 50 Million EUR in project funding and has been actively involved numerous projects, starting from FP6 and FP7. Now we are already planning for Horizon 2020 projects.
CASCADE: CASCADE was a Network of Excellence coordinated by Professor Jan-Åke Gustafsson from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm Sweden.
The aim of CASCADE was to integrate the European Research Capacity in the area of chemical contaminants in food. CASCADE was large 14.4 Million EURO project which included over 20 European Research teams.
CASCADE represented a new approach to scientific research where the scientific research that was conducted was closely integrated into research education, communication and other activities. In this project Ingemar Pongratz was responsible for project administration and communication and was awarded the Communication Star Prize 2011 for best EU Project Communication
PATHFINDER: Ingemar Pongratz wrote the PATHFINDER proposal for the DESCARTES Prize for best European Collaborative European Research in 2005. The PATHFINDER proposal was composed of 6 research teams, including a group in Singapore and was selected as one of the finalist teams by the European Union evaluators.
The scientific focus of the PATHFINDER proposal was around the effects of nutrients and chemical contaminants that modulate hormonal signalling in humans.
Again, this project was coordinated by Professor Jan-Åke Gustafsson.
CommFABNET: Coordinated by YOURIS this project aimed to improve the information flow from EU funded proposal in the FOOD area towards the public, the scientific community and other stakeholders. The project was coordinated by Maio Martinolli and the proposal written by Ingemar Pongratz. The proposal started in 2012.
CASCADE-FELLOW: This project coordinated by the University of Nottingham provides cofunding for a large international post-doctoral program in the Life Science area. The proposal is characterized by its flexible approach and aims to integrate Academic and Industrial research activities in Europe and abroad.
The program is currently ongoing
This ongoing project is coordinated by Professor Marta Korbonits from the William Harvey Institute at the Queen Mary University of London was written during 2013 and has been recently launched. Ingemar Pongratz from Pongratz Consulting wrote the proposal and supported the coordinator during the negotiation pahse. The EU contribution for this project is around 6.5 Million EUR.
