Operational teams

SOS project set-up (Scientific Operations Service)

ICAN’s Scientific Operations team is entirely dedicated to setting up projects from conception to completion, including the key stage of seeking funding.

Each research project is unique and to make it a reality, ICAN provides investigators with a team of project managers to help them structure the project, identify potential partners within the IHU community but also with private partners, anticipate constraints and regulatory procedures and finally finding the most suitable source of financing. Many sources of funding exist (local, national, international, public, private), ICAN is responsible for identifying the best source of funding depending on the project. In collaboration with the investigators, the scientific operations team adapts the set-up of the project in order to give it all the assets to obtain funding.
