Young and yet very experienced
ffiqs was founded in 2018, which means we are still a young organisation, but one with more than 30 years of experience. Prior to establishing ffiqs, our experts were employed by PNO Consultants, market leader in the field of grants and innovation in the Netherlands and Europe. The fact that we were founded in 2018 is no coincidence: the year in which the GDPR came into force. We frequently work with personal data in grant management which led to PNO’s decision to separate off its grant management activities into a separate company: ffiqs!
Why grant management?
A deadline is looming, and a company’s grant administration is not in order: this happens regularly, and those companies often then contact us. Without proper administration you risk the grant authority reducing a committed grant or even demanding that it be repaid in full. Fortunately, in most cases we can respond quickly and get things sorted out in good time. But this does show that the actual administration of grants is usually not given the necessary attention by grant recipients, many seeing it as a necessary evil. By taking the administrative requirements into account at the start of a grant project, you can prevent a lot of trouble. It is also an efficient way to optimise the actual income of grants, especially for larger grant portfolios.
