Funding and grant management | Modis

Funding & grant management

Is your life sciences company in need of non-dilutive funding for R&D, investments, training or other business activities? If you’re not aware of the grant opportunities available or lack the resources to track and grasp new opportunities, Modis can help. Our experienced professionals can identify which grants suit your projects and ambitions and write successful grant applications. And once you do receive that needed grant, we can help you stay compliant with all applicable regulations and steer the project towards successful completion.

Comprehensive, flexible, skilled support

  • We help at any point in the project cycle, from identifying grants and partners to wrapping up successful projects with sustainable results.
  • Our project screenings are extremely thorough – there’s no time wasted on unrealistic or unsuitable grant applications.
  • Count on services as light or heavy as you need, featuring the specific skillsets you need. A review packs a lot of added value with very little effort.
  • Our strong project management skills mean consistently efficient projects.

Service overview

  • Search and feasibility workshop
    We apply our extensive knowledge of the Belgian, European, American and global grants landscape to your business situation. We interview key stakeholders to gain an understanding of the projects in your pipeline, and then we link grants with projects.
  • Pre-assessment
    Long-shot grants are not worth anyone’s time or effort. We kick off the pre-assessment with a quick check. In this way, we determine your project’s chance of success and assess whether your business is ready to apply.
  • Writing, reviewing, editing
    Are you good with drafting, but need in-depth advice on content, style and layouting? Do you need a motivator to coordinate your team? Do you want us to take care of the end-to-end grant writing process? We tailor our services to your needs.
  • Grant administration
    We set up a minimal auditable cost reporting process, manage reporting duties and handle any tasks necessary to keep you compliant with the grant scheme. Our project managers can even support you in project execution.

Healthy aging start-up reaches first-year funding goals – with the help of Modis

Client core business

Rejuvenate Biomed is involved in research and treatment development in the domain of healthy aging. Their business goal is to develop medicines that act on age-related processes in the human body, increasing cell resilience and postponing – or eliminating – age-related disease.

How Modis added value

The client sought non-dilutive funding to complement other financing options. We developed a tailored grant strategy for them, successfully achieving approval for a 0.5 million-euro research grant through the Flemish grant scheme VLAIO within the first year. Moving forward, we aim to help the client apply for additional VLAIO and EU grants.

Contact us

Our passion for developing drugs that delay the onset of age-related diseases, combined with the grant-writing skills of Modis, led to a successful application. Taking these first steps towards achieving our dream was only possible through our intense, respectful collaboration. Modis not only guided us through application requirement hurdles but also supported us with their hands-on approach.
