Sometimes you just need someone to temporarily take on an internal line responsibility or to lead a specific project or program.
As for an interim manager, you are looking for someone who is able to take responsibility quickly, who inspires and sets an example, and who is focused on transferring a reinforced organization back to the company over time.
The project management of an R&D project, with financing from a local government (Vlaio or Innoviris projects) and research and innovation projects subsidized by the European Commission, require specific skills and reporting - especially if your company is a member of a larger consortium of participating companies. Failure to comply with the specific requirements regarding the delivery of deliverables and reporting can lead to an under-utilization of the (financial) potential of these projects.
