Wavestone (former Kurt Salmon) is a new major independent actor on the consulting market. We join together two established and well-known consulting companies, strengthened with 25 years of experience and coming from two different worlds (the world of Big4 for one, and the technology eco system for the other).

We rely on a force of 2.500 employees, spread across 4 continents, with the capacity to operate in a synchronized manner across all of our locations. Within WAVESTONE, the Innovation Management & Funding (IMF) department is specialized in assisting companies and public institutions with all aspects of public funding granted for complex projects.

The team of 45 specialists is spread across Europe and combines local, national and EU coverage of funding programmes. IMF’s specialists combine several decades of experience in setting-up complex projects, obtaining public funding for them and then managing administrative and collaborative matters in order to ensure smooth operation and reporting.

In the field of R&D and innovation, IMF experience has been applied to consortia ranging from 4 to 35 partners, with public funding ranging from 1 to 25 million Euros, granted from leading European and national programmes (FP7, H2020, IMI, ENIAC, LIFE, Eco-innovation, structural funds, etc.).

Wavestone will support at management level the coordinator and the partners for the whole duration of the project. It will provide homogeneous tools, availability and support to ease the day-to-day management of the project.
