"Lille 3 University called on consultants at Efficient Innovation to put together its EquipEx-IrDiv proposal, which was one of the winners of the Investments for the Future Programme (PIA) call for proposals in the “Equipment of Excellence” section in 2011. Efficient Innovation played a decisive role in mounting the project both in terms of the organisation and structuring of the governance, and of the financial engineering. Of the 270 projects submitted in 2011, 36 (13%) were granted the EQUIPEX label, including 5 in the SHS. IrDIVE was the sole SHS project selected north of Paris. The experience and know-how of the consultancy staff enabled us to achieve a level of excellence in the proposal which we would never have achieved without their help. Besides this, the availability and human qualities of the staff was an immeasurable asset for us. I will use their services again at the next opportunity.”

"In addition to a quality market study, Efficient Innovation supplied a very comprehensive analysis which even included hypothetical business models, which were very useful for setting about developing the business plan. The results obtained were highly satisfactory, despite the difficulty of the field (innovative technologies) and the extent of the sectors of activity impacted by our service. Moreover, the attentiveness, rapid response and motivation of our interlocutor at Efficient Innovation were beyond reproach."

Disruptive Innovation Leader at Royal Canin

"Efficient innovation introduced us to an original, “semi-constrained” methodology which enabled us to achieve the innovative target we had set ourselves. It required a little bit of preparation and a few guided, multidisciplinary workshops to reveal some highly promising innovation approaches in a few short weeks. A stimulating adventure with specifications, pragmatism and good humour guaranteed."

"It was with great enthusiasm and professionalism that Efficient Innovation worked with us on an FUI 20 application as part of our ImagHem project. We valued their knowledge of the health sector, as well as their experience in the submission process. It was this broad expertise that prompted us to entrust them with a subsequent submission."
