Things we’ve learnt • No one is too small to participate in FP projects • Having only a good idea is not enough – it must be innovative in the world.. not only in Malta or in Europe • Reporting is a beaurocratic nightmare – we have a team of people who do only that! • Investment is a must – this is not a get rich quick scheme • We enjoy working in European projects!! It’s a breadht of fresh air from the otherwise mundane work
