The Foundation for European Initiatives (TFEI) was established in 1998 and has three major functions:
Dr Paul Quantock holds a number of Chairmanships and Directorships with various organisations in the US, Ireland and the UK. He is currently working on training and advisory projects in the US, Eastern and Western Europe and the Caribbean.
He has been assisting all types of organisations throughout the world to secure European Union funding for over 40 years. This has included identification; negotiation and submission of grant aid applications; assistance in lobbying and “contact building” with European Commission officials; the preparation of “European Strategic Review Reports”; and general help and advice on EU matters that affect a particular organisation.
In 2002 he created EU15 Ltd. EU15 are experts in the development of e-learning solutions and bespoke training platform development. We have worked with numerous organisations to bring to life their ideas and initiatives.
In 2006 he, together with influential Indian figures from Government and NGOs circles, created the “India Healthcare Training Think-Tank” to advise on the future training needs for India in the healthcare sector. Dr Quantock was the Joint Chairman.
In 2013 he created (with UK Government support) the Foundation for Entrepreneurial Participation and in 2016 created, with high profile colleagues from the US, Europe and the Caribbean, the Caribbean Training and Support Group (CARI-TaRG).
He has over 25 years’ experience of developing, delivering and managing complex training activities and creating effective international training partnerships around the world.
He has been recognized by the Governor and Secretary of State for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, USA for his International work and was awarded their highest honour, that of Kentucky Colonel..
He is supported by a dedicated team of professional Associates from around the world.
I have worked with Paul on EU projects whilst with two charities. Understanding what is involved both in terms of developing and submitting an application and also running projects successfully can be incredibly challenging, time consuming and sometimes baffling! Having Paul on board ensured I didn't have to worry about this. He has great in-depth knowledge of this area, in managing partners expectations and how projects need to be managed to ensure they come to a successful fruition.

I have worked with Paul for several years, at two charities operating internationally. I have always been frantically busy, short on internal capacity and under great pressure to produce results. Paul is a perfect companion in this respect. Above all else, he is practical, able to flex his approach to take account of the context in which his client is working whilst at the same time stimulating their thinking and ambition. This is especially vital for organisations that are new to EU funding. Paul knows the EU grants system intimately of course - and can prove it with a limitless supply of anecdotes, advice and guidance - but it is his practical approach, and his ability to make EU funding enjoyable(!), that I value above all else. I have no reservations in recommending him.
