Our formula is to start up with an in-depth analysis to figure out if the company has
a realistic chance of being a winner. If so, we put together a tailor-made team of experts with high commercial and academic acumen. The application is being produced in good partnerships with our customers. We only use our own personnel”.

Mrs. Anki Malmborg Hager, CEO SenzaGen:

”We will use the EU grant for the market launch of an innovative product with the potential to be fundamental to our long-term competitiveness. GAEU is an excellent Horizon 2020 advisor and long-term business partner”.
