Welcome to Collaborare

Collaborare is a joint venture formed by Joanne Holt and Martin McCauley to provide UK Universities and Colleges with targeted support for transnational collaboration.


We have detailed knowledge of a wide range of European Union Funding Programmes that offer financial support to transnational collaboration involving education institutions and other organisations. Through our work with individual institutions we have gained a clear insight into and understanding of what institutions need in order to succeed in these Programmes.


So if you are looking to increase your own or your institution’s involvement in transnational collaborative activity we may be able to help you.


We offer a range of services including for instance:- strategy mapping to support corporate planning; staff development and awareness raising sessions; briefing events; project development; bid writing and application support; project and transnational partnership management; bespoke research and analysis and project evaluation.

Collaborare activities 

In order to provide a flavour of the support we offer, we have added some examples of our work to our services pages.


Support for HEIs throughout the 2014-2020 EU funding period

We are currently offering a retainer package to work with a limited number of HEIs to help them prepare for and manage involvement in the new EU programmes. 


Report on UK HEI participation in EU supported transnational collaboration 2007 - 2012

From an analysis of UK HEI led activity our report answers two common questions:- 'what types of activity can be supported?' and 'what programmes are other HEIs accessing?'
