Paragon Europe

Paragon Europe

Paragon Europe was founded in 2004 with the objective of targeting EU funding opportunities for both the local and the foreign market. Since its inception Paragon Europe, has advocated the importance of integrating innovation techniques as the basis for solid business strategies as well as the underlying rationale of EU co-funded projects. Currently Paragon Europe’s clientele encompasses established firms, public entities and constituted bodies. Paragon Europe has a multi-disciplinary team of experts and academics that are capable of providing a substantial input in project activities. As a result of its vast experience in various EU co-funded projects, Paragon Europe has acquired an in-depth knowledge of the administrative and legal procedures at EU and at national level. Over the years, Paragon Europe has been responsible for the submission of applications for various EU co-funded projects including Lifelong Learning, Youth in Action, Life+, Interreg III, Euro- Med and The Sixth and Seventh Framework Projects (FP6) and (FP7). For example:

  1. C-Liege project (IEE): Paragon Europe is working closely to Hal Tarxien Local Council for the implementation of a number of best practices in the area of Freight Transport;
