I got in contact with WeDo in late 2021, when preparing a Horizon Europe proposal. We met at a Matchmaking event and starting with this 15-minute talk I knew that our collaboration would work. When we started collaborating, it nevertheless felt strange that there was someone who took care of every small administrative detail, called regularly to ask how I did, kept dates and timelines in sight and made sure that we stayed on track. Up until then I had written and managed my project proposals mainly by myself. In the hot phase, towards the submission deadline, WeDo felt like part of my family. After we had submitted the proposal, I felt like something was missing in my life – the daily contact with WeDo, which had become a substantial and much-appreciated part of my routine by then.
