How we bring the rain

Innovation is essential to a company’s long-term success. But even in the best of times, innovation investments are difficult. Typically, success rates are low, and returns on investment are far from assured. In RAINNO we apply a hands-on approach aiming to maximize your return on investments from innovation by offering access to Know-How, Funding and Networks.


Know How

We work closely across various levels of hierarchy to help companies and organizations prioritize their innovation needs and formulate their strategic research agenda. Then we help them translate this strategic agenda into a concrete program with realistic and measurable short and medium term targets with emphasis on funding and delivery.



We start by helping clients identify the opportunities for funding, with emphasis in competitive EU initiatives, where advanced expertise and understanding of the R&I landscape are needed. Then we support clients in preparing high quality proposals and/or participating in competitive consortia.



Innovation with global market ambitions can rarely be developed without global collaborations. This statement becomes more relevant if we take into account the requirement of many EU initiatives for multi-disciplinary collaborative research. Under this framework we help our clients identify the proper partners for their R&I project.
