About Us



Whitehorne Scientific Consulting is a Australian based agency (Directors – Fire Sanders and Willem Bouma), offering professional consulting and advisory services to researchers, universities, and research institutes both in the Netherlands and Europe.

One of our specialties is ERC research grant proposals. We provide strategic support and advice during both the prepatory and writing phases for ERC Starting, ERC Consolidator and ERC Advanced proposals.

We also provide high-quality professional (local and long distance) ERC Starting and ERC Consolidator interview coaching and training.

A hallmark of our services is that all work is undertaken by Fire Sanders and Willem Bouma. We send no work out to other consultants or third parties for review. Therefore, you will always receive personalized, professional support from experienced Senior Consultants.
