“ThePortsmouth University University of Portsmouth collaborated with Laurie Barriol from Inspire-EU in the preparation of a major EU funding bid during the summer of 2015.  We found her extensive knowledge and experience to be extremely helpful in preparing the bid and she was able to make a number of important connections with prominent individuals across Europe based on her impressive list of contacts.  Altogether, Laurie directly and demonstrably improved the quality of our proposal and we remain extremely grateful for her input.  I would definitely recommend Inspire-EU and would not hesitate to work with them again on future projects”. Dr Joe Cox, Portsmouth Business School.
