After more than 15 years of success in international EU grant writing and change management, we decided to put our focus and full commitment into those projects that will make a difference with regard to a world that is at the same time smart, digital and sustainable. So, IFE was founded in 2020 with the purpose of developing grant applications to European funding bodies such as Horizon Europe, Digital Europe, LIFE or CEF.

We work with world-leading companies, cities, research institutions and NGOs to identify grant funding opportunities in the Climate Neutral, Smart City and Digital thematic areas, create consortiums focused on delivering impactful projects, write grant applications to secure €2.5 – €40m+ projects and manage the project kick-off process. We came together as a team to unlock funding for impactful projects.
We believe in innovation, flexibility and responsibility. Join our team and share our vision!
