Schuman Associates is a Brussels-based, independent, consultancy with more than 25 years’ experience in European funding and public affairs and with a network of offices in Milan, Madrid, Sofia, Bucharest, Athens, Dublin, and partners in the USA, Schuman Associates is the leading EU Business Development Consultancy in Brussels. Our independence and size allows us to be flexible and to tailor our services and costs to meet clients’ specific requirements, thus avoiding the ‘one size fits all’ approach often adopted by larger global consultancies and law firms. Currently, our team of around 20 permanent consultants works for more than 25 clients in many sectors ranging from ICT, Energy, Metals, Financial Services, Health, Development, Education and Employment.
Our reputation is built on success. A major element of this is listening to the organisations that we work with, understanding their real needs. Based on these needs we develop tailored programmes. The objective is always to provide real added value for our clients that will impact on their business development efforts.
Our client services fall broadly into two categories (although the two inevitably overlap) funding as well as policy, therefore capturing the complete life cycle of an opportunity. Schuman Associates is specialised in supporting clients, leveraging market opportunities created by EU Funding Programmes and understanding and influencing the policy and regulatory framework driving these opportunities. We support a broad range of clients ranging from governments and large global firms to SMEs and NGOs and we are working in all major sectors including IT and security, energy and environment, trade and development, financial services, telecommunications, education and health.
Schuman Associates is committed to the highest professional standards, integrity is key to our service to clients and in our relations with the European Institutions. We are dedicated to delivering beyond expectations and to giving a return on investment.
