All of our solutions can be performed via the following engagement types:
Short term contracts: you need a specialist parachuted in to resolve an urgent problem, or you know its only a short duration project
Interim contracts: there is a human resource shortage based on a maternity leave or peaks in your anticipated work load that are easier to fill with an external resource
Time restricted contracts: you need someone regularly but not full time
Long term contracts: you have a larger strategic plan in mind and want someone to take it in hand from A-Z
With 30 years global experience in life science and Health Care, we have a profound and current knowledge of all major medical pathologies, rare diseases, diagnostics, digital health, pharmaceutical interventions, biopharmaceutical and advanced therapeutics (gene therapy, cell therapy, bioengineering and regenerative medicine) is leveraged; this has resulted in over 500 different publications in Scientific Communication, Health Communication, Professional Education, Promotional writing, Commercialisation, Grantsmanship, and Research related documents. Examples of this work can be found at link
International Project management
18 years of experience in implementing international project management, either within a continent or globally between teams on different continents can be leveraged to enable progress. Familiarity with most project management methodologies, and a intercultural empathy and an almost constant availability, we know that there is not a catalogue of approaches from which one must be selected. Rather there is a discourse with the project partners to redesign and tailor the approach as a function of ensuring progress.
International Operations management
In-between project and contract management is operations management: this is fundamentally contract management plus organisational actions, such as training courses, meetings, resource mapping and usage, activity reporting, innovation assessments and opportunity mapping, for example creating a sand box approach where the partnership is also kept informed of additional funding opportunities to spin off new ideas, and informally introduce new resources into a growing focused ecosystem.
Non dilutive fund raising and grant writing
With over €150 Mn raised in non-dilutive capital from public and private sources, and a constant desire to improve while adapting our solutions to the change in funding instrument structure as a function of the funding bodies strategic changes we take great joy in enabling visionaries and innovators to obtain the financial lubricant that permits realisation. This is supported by our own internal market intelligence on global innovation needs and our database of funding sources.
International contract management
Separate from project management, some
projects and programmes only require contractual (fiscal and contract governance) management: examples include Fundamental research programmes, that have lower frequency Key Performance Indicators or milestones, in which the R&D team can auto manage but needs help with financial coordination and reporting.
Other examples include projects that have in-house expertise in project management, but not in international contract management
Convergent technology partnering
For those entities seeing knowledge or commercial opportunity by introducing interdisciplinary approaches into their plans, we specialise in using our contract, operations and project management insights to enable this vision. Convergent technology projects are unique to manage, their capacity to create game changing solutions is monumental. But this requires a significantly different approach to organisational development and culture+discipline integration. KPIs and milestones are only realistic at around 18 months plus start, and to reach that requires a pronounced hands on approach to risk and conflict management.
Internationalisation and expansion
Exclusively for commercially focused endeavours or academic partnerships looking to globalise, we can provide knowledge resources or actively help you implement the activity.
This can include feasibility studies, international congress partnering support and representation, market valuations, pipeline review and valuations, opportunity assessments, partner reviews and recommendations, regulatory, standards and reimbursement insights and potential funding solutions to enable it to actually work.
