Facilitating the access to public funding programmes

SQM.guide is an internet-based guide conceived for facilitating the access to public funding programmes. For all programmes which have been implemented on the system, SQM.guide allows to every person who is looking for funding:

  • to identify the pertinent elements of the programme
  • to make an ex-ante appraisal of their project proposal

The use of SQM.guide is publicly accessible over the internet and free of charge for the users. Usually the users will accede to it via the website of an institution offering one or more public funding programmes and will only see this specific programme.

The aims of SQM.guide

  • To improve the visibility and accessibility of funding programmes
  • To improve the transparency of objectives and procedures
  • To promote the systematic consideration of the principles of sustainable development
  • To raise the number of good project proposals
  • To motivate project proposers to consider their proposal in the context of the objectives of the funding programme and of sustainable development
  • To contribute to an easier writing and a higher quality of the proposals by making publicly accessible a systematic and transparent appraisal method and corresponding tools
  • To facilitate the selection of proposals through a comparable presentation of the proposals based on a framework including all important contents-related criteria
  • To prepare the monitoring of the projects on the basis of a systematic and comprehensive ex-ante appreciation.
