EU projects

Tamlink's core business includes generating, organizing and coordinating EU projects and programs.

Tamlink often plays an important role in building a consortium. Depending on the nature of the project, Tamlink can act as a project manager, among other things, and take care of the bureaucratic side of the project, such as applications and reporting.  

Often, Tamlink also plays a strong role in the dissemination of project results, communication, and the implementation of events and workshops.  

Tamlink is also expanding its operations to manage cascade funding provided in some EU projects. Cascade projects distribute a certain amount of funding to external actors through open calls for proposals.


Cascade funding offers an opportunity to increase the effectiveness of the project and to acquire more expertise. The aim of the funding mechanism is to simplify administrative procedures by creating a lighter startup- and SME-friendly application system.

Tamlink's role is to organize and promote open calls for proposals and to manage the distribution of funding to SMEs and medium-sized enterprises, including cascading funding to third parties.
