Lynkeus offers project management services to institutions or organisations that are seeking EC funding for innovative research projects.

Lynkeus’ accrued experience in the FP6 and the FP7 European projects has shown, quite in advance of the established practices of project management in this field, the added value from an approach which operates with a separation of functions between global Coordination, for which the leading industrial or clinical partner is responsible, and a professional Project Management, closely integrated into the decision making structure of a Consortium and strongly supporting its coordination – but not infringing on the Coordinator’s legal responsibilities to the European Commission.

This approach is believed to be especially beneficial if the Project Management system is closely entwined with an initial “vision management” as a central tenant, because this way the Project Manager can better strategically support the Coordinator and can also most usefully lead the dissemination work within the project.
