Scientific Network Management S.L. (SNM) is a privately owned company created in 2013 by Pascal Kahlem, which focuses on Grant Writing, Assessment, Training and Management for scientific research and innovation projects in Europe.
Our area of expertise is life sciences, systems biology, bioinformatics, and we can provide technical support in other domains.
SNM's expertise is on European Commission funding (Horizon 2020), but we can provide support for all national and international funding bodies.
As managing partner within a consortium, SNM provides a fully reliable management service with a very competitive budget compared to hiring a specific manager by the coordinator. We provide expertise, flexible personnel and can save costs by adjusting our contribution to the exact need of the project.
Pascal Kahlem (CEO)
Since June 2016, SNM partners with Octopux Consulting, which is based in Brussels (Belgium).
Since June 2016, SNM partners with Aristos Innovation Consulting, which is based in Sant Cugat del Valles (Spain).
The company gathers a team of four senior scientific project managers, who are involved in grant writing, assessment, training and project management. The company provides also professional web design and graphics design.
In 2015, two of our senior managers have been designated by the Framework Programme "ACCIO" of the Catalan Government as consultants accredited for the area of expertise Horizon 2020 and the sector RIS3CAT "Industries of health and life sciences".
“I started my management carrier in 2006 at the European Bioinformatics Institute (UK) with the pan-European systems biology project “ENFIN” and realized very quickly that I was able to move scientific projects by helping scientists in what represented a burden to them: the paperwork and the project organisation. In 2013, the company Scientific Network Management SL was born.”
SNM capitalizes on the experience of its coworkers who are all scientists, professional grant writers, editors, project managers.
Since 2012, SNM has worked with more than 200 clients in 28 countries worldwide.
Since 2012, SNM has been involved in the writing of more than 30 scientific projects applying for grants from various funding bodies:
The European Commission:
Pillar I - Excellent Science (ERC, FET, Research Infrastructure, MSCA-ITN);
Pillar II - Industrial Leadership (LEIT,SME-Instrument phase 1&2);
Pillar III - Societal Challenges (Health, Food and safety)
National Swiss and British funding bodies.
In 2014, SNM has been the managing partner within the pan-European project ProteomeXchange, funded in 2011 by the European Commission under the Framework Programme FP7.
The managers at SNM have already managed individually 7 scientific projects and networks since 2006 at the international level (European Commission Framework Programmes 6 and 7).
SNM proved to be highly professional and created a team-friendly atmosphere on top of it.
I contracted SNM in 2014 to support the writing of an ERASysAPP grant and an H2020 proposal. Pascal and his team provided expert knowledge over EC grant management. Their work and support has been highly reliable during all the writing process, including the consortium building, partners’ data collection, budget development, proposal writing and review, and timely submission. I will certainly contract his company again at the next opportunity.
I worked together with Pascal during the ProteomeXchange project. I can only highlight his good work, his high motivation to get things done properly and in time and his deep knowledge of all EU grants related stuff. He is definitely the "perfect" project manager of EU Consortia.
I worked with Pascal as part of the ENFIN project. He was an outstanding project manager, not only supporting the group but making sure that progress was constantly being made (difficult in a 5-year project) and making significant contributions to the scientific development of the project as well. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a scientific project manager.
