R&D Club Projects

reach2
The EPMA is active in many types of project either as a partner or as project manager. These projects are generally either "club" projects which are financed by and restricted to a small number of members or Government funded projects which tend to be larger and of longer duration.

In EPMA "Club" Projects a subject of importance to EPMA Members is identified (typically by an EPMA Committee); a specification is prepared and quotations are obtained from specialist organisations or experienced consultants; the most appropriate offer is then circulated to relevant EPMA members with an invitation to participate in a consortium. Providing sufficient members express commitment, a Consortium Agreement is normally drafted, agreed by the members, and the project commences .
