Build and manage collaborative R&D projects
Professional project management services for large scale R&D projects and EU projects, from consortium building and project planning to handing in the final report.
R&D projects are all about bringing science into innovations by solving complex technical challenges in interdisciplinary teams. However, collecting funding, finding the right consortium partners and diligent project management are equally essential for a successful project.
Innomedica provides you with experience
Preparation of a collaborative R&D project is labour intensive with 200-400 hours of work needed to complete the project plan and funding proposal. Not to mention the hours needed for project management and reporting during the project. Innomedica has coordinated life science R&D projects and project portfolios with the total value of more than 250 million euros. With this experience, we can bring routine to the innovations in the making.
Innomedica’s experienced project management team works with you through our three step process:
One-pager and consortium building:
First thing to do is to identify the best partners for your project. Some of them are your close collaborators, some are newer acquaintances. In order to invite consortium partners to your project, we prepare a one-pager describing the basic concept, tentative structure and goals of your project. If needed, Innomedica will help you to identify additional partners and contact them.
The initial contents of work packages will be drafted together with the scientific coordinator. After that, a work distribution meeting is organized to design the detailed work plan with the consortium. We will support you with writing the final project plan. In EU projects, Innomedica often leads the writing of the management and impact parts, and collects the necessary administrative information from the consortium partners.
During the project, we will work side by side with you controlling work schedules, deliverables and budget, and taking care of the day-to-day management of the project. Innomedica likes to take special responsibilities in dissemination and exploitation tasks, ensuring that the impact of the project carries beyond its completion.
In the past, we have worked with projects spanning from several different technologies and indication areas. Some of our recent areas in R&D project management are:
- Drug discovery and development
- Biotechnology tools
- Synthetic biology
- Stem cells
