Coordination and guidance

With over 20 years of experience managing EU-based, regional and Dutch-funded projects, we are experts in managing a variety of international and national grants and their particular compliances and regulations. Our project portfolio currently totals >125 projects valued at €300 million.

Working with a dedicated Catalyze Project Manager provides you with structure, regulatory expertise and efficiency so you can focus on the science. Our scientific knowledge and management experience ensures that we identify risks ahead of time and provide clear strategies to mitigate them. 

We monitor, manage and provide expertise 

In close consultation we design a comprehensive tailor made system which monitors, manages and provides expertise. 

  • Project monitoring: We adapt our bespoke monitoring system in order to establish and maintain crucial oversight of your budget, hours, deliverables, reporting, etc. We facilitate monthly meetings to discuss progress, issues, and ongoing tasks; provide templates, drafts, and upload deliverables for technical reporting to funding agencies; ensure timely completion of high quality tasks and milestones by all partners so that their contractual obligations are met to procure funding. 
  • Project management: Our management promotes open, transparent communication; mitigates risk through early identification and resolution of potential issues; assists with change requests, such as no-cost project extensions. 
  • Providing expertise: We provide you with grant and financial guidance, as well as providing on-demand access to your assigned Project Manager. 


Case: Project management for Plantics (Horizon 2020)

“Since 2019 Catalyze has supported us with the project management for two EU Horizon 2020 grant projects. This proves to be very helpful: Catalyze makes sure that the reporting is done in a timely manner, they critically review the financial and progress reporting, they interact with the EU, organize consortium meetings and support us when needed. The Catalyze people are very knowledgeable and professional and have really become part of the team. Due to this support, we have worked much more efficiently and the projects run smoothly. I would recommend everyone that has received such a grant, to contract professional project management support from Catalyze.”

– Wridzer Bakker, CEO Plantics


Project management for Liquidseal (Eurostars)

“I think it’s important to have a partner that helps you run your project. On a daily basis, everybody gets new information and new input from all over the world. So it’s good to have Catalyze’s project management support to help keep the project focussed and on track. When time passes and you need to look back and ask, ‘Okay, what have we done?’ it makes it easier to have our project manager controlling the process.”

– Victor Monster, Managing Director Liquidseal
