For large companies grants and incentives are tools for achieving strategic ambitions. They provide additional valuable input alongside commercial finance, allowing you to accelerate major projects, leverage funding and reduce risks.
In our view, subsidies and government incentives are never a target in themselves. They are a strategic means of achieving ambitions, and they bring more with them than money alone. They confer societal approval of your projects and your organisation.
At any one time, you may have numerous complex, large-scale ambitions and projects in which public funding could play a role. Whether you are nationally based or have an international dimension, you need a single point of contact with an experienced partner to help you organise the way you manage grants. This is where PNO comes in. We have teams that specialise in assisting multinational companies, cross-border enterprises of all sizes and large national companies.
Navigating the European grantscape together
We know which activities attract funding and have a strong track record of co-developing projects, engineering proposals and making applications, as well as establishing compliance with the relevant financial and legal requirements set by funding authorities. We understand all aspects of grant project management and can use our experience and high-level contacts to ensure best practice, complementing the skills in your own organisation. We can help you put all the pieces together to optimise success. We are both pan-European and local, with more national branches than any other grants consultant.
Broad knowledge and dedicated team
We cover all major industry sectors and EU subsidy themes. We have specialists in innovation, sustainability, logistics, energy, environment and corporate social responsibility. We already help numerous (cross-border) clients to leverage the execution of their strategies by bringing in additional funding. Our local staff speak the language of grants and are at home in the language and culture of the countries in which they operate.
We employ dedicated teams of subject specialists who identify, track and monitor the many grants schemes that are available each year. Working closely with you, we use our knowledge and expertise to match funding programmes to your strategic projects. Then we manage the application process. Typically, this involves drafting and re-writing project business plans, helping you to find relevant project partners, giving advice on state aid rules, meeting administrative criteria and providing overall grant related project management.
Many multinational companies prefer centralised subsidy management, because it reduces risk and improves relationships with grantor bodies. Our dedicated account teams are led by experienced managers who can answer all of your grant-related questions. Through one single point of contact we can mobilise our native-speaking teams and their extensive networks to fully exploit your funding potential. In this way PNO provides you with:
- central coordination plus local expertise and implementation
- access to an international knowledge network and potential partners support in optimising your financing strategy and the organisation that implements it.
