Success Stories

Occupational Dazzled


The Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM) has obtained funding for several FP7 projects through assistance by Scottish Enterprise, allowing the organisation to enter a previously alien funding scheme and become successful in a variety of fascinating European projects.

They have since completed an FP6 project, which they entered as Coordinator (lead partner) alongside 21 other partners from across Europe and, having enjoyed so much previous success in Framework Programme, IOM applied for several FP7 projects again, with the assistance of EES.

In May 2009, IPM started managing an FP7 project with 17 partners (ENPRA) and are active partners in several other nano-related FP7 projects including SAFENANO and ESCAPE.

"All of this was possible thanks to the advice and guidance of Enterprise Europe Scotland and the support offered through Scottish Enterprise said Susan Scarisbrick, Research Operations Manager at the Institute of Occupational Medicine.
