About us


We are your sparring partner in the European research and innovation landscape.

What started out during the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) and carried on through to Horizon 2020 has become a long history of supporting EU funded projects. Our enthusiasm has not halted with the transition to the 9th Framework Programme Horizon Europe.

We offer expertise and professional services to help you find your next funding opportunity, manage your research and innovation projects and make an impact through the strategic communication, dissemination and exploitation of results. We are specialised in European research, development and innovation support programmes such as Horizon Europe and EUREKA Eurostars.

Our focus areas are Health (life sciences), the Green Deal (environment and energy) and Digitalisation (ICT, security and space), but we also support projects in the fields of materials and manufacturing with our expertise complementary to specialists in the different research and application areas.

At accelopment, our team defines our company. We are dedicated and dynamic professionals, committed to providing you with high-quality support to help shape a sustainable future.

We value honesty, transparency, sustainable partnerships and lifelong learning for all. We believe in the importance of diversity and build upon our complementary expertise to constantly learn from each other and grow as a team.

We are passionate about our work and always interested in learning about yours.

Meet the team


Our mission is to promote research and innovation in Europe.

To achieve this, we are a reliable partner for researchers, universities, research institutions, entrepreneurs, start-up companies, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and larger corporations (industry) in European research, development and innovation programmes.

Thanks to our two legal entities, accelopment Schweiz AG (Zürich) and accelopment Deutschland GmbH (Heidelberg), we offer both access to complementary national funding schemes and maximum flexibility regarding our participation in EU-funded research and innovation projects.

As a member of the two leading professional associations in EU-funded research and innovation, namely the European Association for Innovation Consultants (EAIC) and the European Association for Research Managers and Administrators (EARMA), we share our long lasting experience while staying up to date on the latest development in EU innovation policies and their implementation.
