I had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Alie Kwint on the submission of a proposal to the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND programme led by BiOrbic, Bioeconomy SFI Research Centre. Alie's feedback throughout the entire process was invaluable. From refining our programme's structures and procedures in early rough drafts to polishing the final text, her insightful and practical advice delivered in a timely and clear manner no doubt made a big difference in pushing up our evaluation score and contributed to a smooth proposal development process. We were delighted to be selected for funding by the European Commission and look forward to working with Alie again on submission of future proposals.

Working with Alie was an incredibly valuable part of the preparation of my MSCA proposal. Her detailed and knowledgeable comments allowed me to not only create a winning proposal but encouraged me to think meticulously about all aspects of my research, from experimental planning to outreach and communication, ultimately enabling me to make the most of my MSCA experience.

It was a pleasure to work with Alie Kwint on my Maria Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship proposal with Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Alie acted as an external evaluator and reviewed my proposal and my CV very thoroughly providing me with valuable suggestions which helped me to address any weak points of my application. Thanks to Alie’s help, I got my MSCA IF on the first try scoring 100% in the evaluation and ending up first in the Information Science and Engineering (ENG) panel.

It turned out that Alie's advice and help was a fundamental, game-changing step into achieving a successful proposal. Not only her extensive expertise and deep knowledge on MSCA, with very specific and accurate suggestions for every single section of the proposal, but also her willingness to help and get the best out of the project, makes her a key player to boost your chances of success. And above all, Alie guided me through a learning process that goes beyond a specific action, an eye-opening experience about how to successfully write a research proposal that will certainly help me in the near future".

Alie has been great in helping our candidates improve their MSCA-IF proposals. Her perspective into the proposal writing process, and the impact and implementation sections in particular, is far beyond anything we can manage.
Prof. Hugo de Boer, Acting Research Director Natural History Museum, University of Oslo, Norway (February 2021)
Alie delivered a Marie Curie proposal writing course at my institution and, being impressed by her professionalism, her thorough familiarity with this EU programme, and her quick grasp of scientific proposals, I employed her to help advise on a draft proposal. Over the course of two separate discussions, she helped me to significantly strengthen my proposal and challenged me on its weaknesses. Her help provided a key edge in my winning funding for my proposal. I would certainly recommend her and happily employ her services again.
Prof. Michael Gilchrist – Professor and chair of Mechanical Engineering, School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, University College Dublin (Feb 2021)
Alie is a top class proposal writer for Marie Curie. We successfully put together a proposal that was highly ranked and funded first time around. Alie operates at a high level and can work on the programme design, as well as at impact and operational level. She really understands the pinch points and subtleties of proposal creation. She is also capable of managing all stakeholders from afar. Would 110% work with Alie again!
Prof. Conor McCarthy – Centre Director and PI at Smart Manufacturing, a Science Foundation Ireland funded research centre (March 2021)
The help I got from Alie for my Marie Curie application was incommensurable. I can with no doubt say that her suggestions and corrections made my application successful. For many of the application sections I had a very hard time to understand what information is needed. It always felt that I was repeating myself.
But Alie patiently guided me and helped me a lot to make those parts clear, concise and complete. I totally recommend Alie.
