Dr. Milan Vanecek, Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (Czech Republic)

Client voices

“I enjoyed working with EMDESK. I found it rather easy to find my way through a complete new application for me. Thanks for letting me use this application.”

Robin Bronkhorst, Manager Special Projects, TNO Quality of Life (The Netherlands)

Client voices

“I have been using EMDESK since 2008 for managing a project with 36 partners from 18 countries. I have been particularly impressed by the supportiveness & efficiency. The cooperation with EMDESK was very productive and pleasant; and I'm looking forward to continuing this beneficial cooperation.”

Mark Tiele Westra, FOM-Institute for Plasma Physics Rijnhuizen, Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research (The Netherlands)

Client voices

“I must say that EMDESK helped me to prepare a proposal in less than 3 weeks which is really good. In general, my opinion is that is a very good software.”

Dr. Carlos Beltran Gonzalez, R&D Project Manager, Aitek (Italy)

Client voices

“There are many reasons why the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft has decided to conclude a framework contract with EMDESK. A main advantage of EMDESK is that it is especially tailored to the requirements of research projects in the 7th Framework Programme - thus it is possible to administrate the proposal creation as well as the negotiation and project implementation with only one system.”

Maximilian Steiert, EU Project Officer, Headquarter of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (Germany)

Client voices

“I found it very easy and logical to use.”

Kim Noonan, Project Coordinator, BRE Group (United Kingdom)

Client voices

“We thoroughly enjoy working with EMDESK. As a large project with hundreds of partners and lots of deadlines, we have a tight schedule and special requirements. This software has proven to be an invaluable tool for reporting, collaboration, and completing our daily project administration tasks. We're grateful that EMDESK has been able to provide competent support, personalized service, and custom developments. We'd recommend EMDESK to anyone looking for a comprehensive collaboration solution.”

Eric Martrou, HBP Finance Officer (Switzerland)

Client voices

“The Technical Support at EMDESK is a great asset to my daily work. The support representatives provide quick and helpful answers. They carefully read what I write in emails, and provide comprehensive answers and clear guidelines on how to proceed.”

Eva Haas, EU Project Manager, RWTH Aachen University (Germany)

Client voices

“EMDESK was an excellent tool that the partners were able to use easily and quickly. We were happy with the choice we made. I appreciated greatly the fact that WP leaders were able to enter info directly into EMDESK and I didn't have to exchange back and forth with Word.”

Laura Cherdel, MyOcean Project Administrator (France)

Client voices

“We selected EMDESK to submit the HBP proposal after facing problems with other tools. We switched to EMDESK less than 3 months before submission and were very happy that the collaboration went so smoothly. The EMDESK team met our individual requirements quickly and professionally. With budget and administrative data to be consolidated for more than 80 partners, this was quite an achievement. I believe that such a big proposal could not have been prepared without its help and we plan to use EMDESK even more now, in particular as our project management tool.”

Dr. Christian Fauteux, Chief Administrative Officer, The Human Brain Project (Switzerland)

Client voices

“I have completed both H2020 and ECSEL EU proposals during 2014, using EMDESK. What a big difference! EMDESK has made my life so much easier. Thank you very much. We are also going to use it for project management.”

Dr. Thorbjörn Ebefors, Chief Technologist; Co-founder and VP R&D, SILEX Microsystems AB, (Sweden)

Client voices

“EMDESK is brilliant. I put together a bid in 5 weeks with the help of EMDESK. Without EMDESK that would have been impossible. I think it must save at least 30% of the time and effort in recalculating contractor costs and details, which can be a nightmare in traditional spreadsheets.”

Christopher Wright, THERAPYAUDIT (United Kingdom)

Client voices

“EMDESK a very helpful, easy-to-use and convenient tool - I would use it any time again. EMDESK proves to be an application that facilitates greatly not only the compilation of data but also any subsequent rearrangement or quick adaptations - whenever you change something all tables and charts linked are auto-updated. As the system can be accessed by partners at any time, the proposal development becomes a very transparent process for the whole project team.”

Manuela Kienegger, AIT – Austrian Institute of Technology (Austria)

Client voices

“It is a great pleasure to work with EMDESK. The software is very convincing and facilitating project management.”

Gabriele Hamm, Institute of Photonic Technology, Jena (Germany)

Client voices

“After the evaluation by the project management team of the Fraunhofer EU-Network and the Fraunhofer SIT (Institute for Secure Information technology) EMDESK clearly convinced us because of its usability. It also fulfills the strict data-protection standards of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft.”

Maximilian Steiert, EU Project Officer, Headquarter of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (Germany)

Client voices

“EMDESK is a useful and functional web service, which facilitates the management of EU projects financed under the 7th Framework Programme. EMDESK has positively evolved since its launch and the administration services react promptly to resolve issues. More importantly, EMDESK is always open to hear recommendations for improvement and to act accordingly for its implementation. EMDESK differentiates itself from other competitors due to its user-friendly interface and the wide range of functions it offers. In short, EMDESK offers good value for money.”

Eduardo Herrmann, Senior Project Manager, Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum (Germany)

Client voices

“EMDESK provides us useful solutions and helps us a lot with project management! At CIRCE we were looking for a good tool to manage our coordinated EU projects. We started using EMDESK with one project and quickly switched also running projects over to the tool as it gives us accuracy and an integral control over the project. In addition we are very happy with the technical and commercial support we receive. We plan to continue using EMDESK also for Horizon 2020 projects. We strongly recommend the tool!”

José Luis Vadillo López, Fundación CIRCE (Spain)

Client voices

“The use of EMDESK has made the task of managing much more rewarding. You can have full control over every aspect of the program with minimal daily effort. It's really an invaluable tool for managing projects (especially large ones).”

Paolo Di Michele, Project Manager, SELEX ES SpA (Italy)

Client voices

“We found EMDESK quite useful when writing our recent FP7 call bid for the following tasks: Making a template for our bid document, with all the tables required according to the EC guidelines, and particularly cross-referencing the work packages, milestones and efforts across tables; and collecting the information about individual participants - organisations and individuals. It was useful that this information could be collected in parallel and at the convenience of the multiple parties.”

Dr. Graeme Woodward, Research Leader of the Telecommunications Research Laboratory, Toshiba Research Europe Limited (United Kingdom)

Client voices

“EMDesk made the proposal writing process a lot faster. Less fiddling in Word - all the redundant stuff is entered only once, and all necessary GANTT charts, tables etc. are generated automatically.”

Prof. Michael Welzl, University of Oslo (Norway)

Client voices

“We have been really impressed with the software in helping make monitoring and reporting so much easier. The support services in setting up the system and answering questions were always excellent, concise and efficient. I have recommended this software to anyone who is preparing an EU bid as it takes away a lot of the pain of pea counting and formatting proposal and reporting documentation.”

Prof. Jacqueline O'Reilly, University of Brighton (United Kingdom)

Client voices

“I'm pleased with the services EMDESK provided throughout the complete proposal writing phase.I like how it handled document versioning.”

Ákos Horváth, Department of Measurement and Information Systems, Budapest University of Technology and Economics (Hungary)

Client voices

“I have been very content with using the EMDESK service. EMDESK is a great software and has hit the proposal preparation requirements, spot on. It helped me to reduce the proposal preparation time by more than 30%. Using the built-in versioning capabilities, we were able to reduce the overall overhead of keeping a master document by more than 50%. I have been using your system for 3 years now and have to congratulate the team for their work”

Kostas Giokas, Institute of Communication and Computer Systems, National Technical University of Athens (Greece)

Client voices

“EMDESK is an impressive system that is very well put together - especially as it improves to address large research teams.”

Andreas Constantinou, Research Director, VisionMobile (United Kingdom)
