Dr Eirini Theofanidou
Proposal Development Executive (EU & International)
As proposal development executive in the EU/International team, I work in close partnership with academic lead(s) and their partners in order to design, develop and deliver compelling research proposals. Working across all three colleges within the University of Edinburgh, I provide advice on the suitability of individual projects for specific calls, help fostering collaborations across the university with joint/interdisciplinary submissions and facilitate the building of optimum consortia when possible. Together with my colleagues in the EU/International funding team, we give advice to ensure compliance with funder regulations and requirements, working with PIs from concept to submission in the development of all aspects within the proposal writing process.
